In Game 5 of the 2015 World Series, in the bottom of the 12th inning, the Kansas City Royals won their first championship in thirty years against the New York Mets!
A win especially satisfying for Dayton Moore, General Manager for the Royals—a team in a small market that hadn’t had much success since winning the World Series in 1985.
It was a call with his mentor, Tim Cash, team chaplain for the Atlanta Braves, that changed Moore’s mind. The clincher was when Cash quoted a passage from the Apostle Paul to his protégé Timothy, recorded in 2 Timothy 1:7: “For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
Regardless of outcomes, Moore has remained adamant in his desire to impact players’ and coaches’ lives! He says, “it’s a blessing to do something you love to do that you’re passionate about.”
