KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals' general manager, Dayton Moore will be inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, the team announced Monday.

Under Moore's leadership, the Royals made the playoffs for the first time in 29 years in 2014 when the team won the American League Championship.

Even though the team came up just short in 2014, the Royals won their first World Series Championship in 30 years in 2015 under Moore's leadership.

During his time as general manager, the team has produced 19 Rawlings Gold Glove winners, two Platinum Glove winners, 29 All-Star Game selections, six silver sluggers and a Cy Young Award winner, according to the team.

In 2013, Moore established the “C” You In the Major Leagues Foundation, which works with youth baseball, education, families in crisis and faith-based programs and organizations.

Moore joined the Royals on May 30, 2006, and will enter his 15th year with the team in the 2021 season.

The enshrinement ceremony is set for Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021, at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds.
