It’s that time of the year again!
Anyone who knows me knows my passion for the Kansas City Royals.
I grew up in Kansas City. I’ve been a Royals fan my whole life.
So Game 5 of the 2015 World Series, bottom of the 12th inning, was a touchstone for me. That’s when the Kansas City Royals won their first championship in 30 years — beating the New York Mets.
But as much as I loved that moment, it was even more deeply satisfying for Dayton Moore, General Manager of the Royals.
K.C. hadn’t seen much success in three decades. It would have been easy to be discouraged. But Moore’s attitude changed in 2015.
A phone conversation with his mentor, Tim Cash — Team Chaplain for the Atlanta Braves — was the clincher. Cash quoted a passage from the Apostle Paul (to his own 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.”
From that day, regardless of outcomes, Moore has remained adamant in his desire to impact players’ and coaches’ lives.
“It’s a blessing,” he says, “to do something you love to do that you’re passionate about.”
One brief passage from the Bible changed the trajectory of his life — and rewrote baseball history!
