Moore up for a challenge
Dayton Moore kept using the word “challenge” to explain his decision to accept an offer to become the Royals’ new general manager.
“In Kansas City,” he said, “it’s the opportunity to build something that really has me energized. … It all goes back to the challenge.”
The Royals concluded their lengthy pursuit of Moore, an Atlanta assistant, by reaching agreement late Tuesday on a contract that runs through 2010. Financial details were not available.
Moore, 39, replaces Allard Baird as the club’s general manager and vice president for baseball operations. Baird, 44, learned of his dismissal Wednesday morning by phone from team president Dan Glass.
