Childhood and education
Born February 17, 1967, in Wichita, Kansas, Moore grew up a Royals fan. He attended grade school in Lakewood, New York, but due to his fathers job transfer went to junior high at Coolidge Jr. High and High School at Moline Sr. High school in the Quad Cities where he led the Moline Legion Post 246 baseball team to a 2nd place finish in the 1984 Illinois State Legion Baseball Tournament and a berth in the National Tournament in Rapid City, South Dakota, where they faced Greg Olson (future Baltimore Orioles pitcher and one of the MLBs most prolific saves leader). Moore claims to have watched the 1985 World Series in Kansas City from I-70. He played baseball at Garden City Community College before graduating from George Mason University in 1989, with an undergraduate degree in Physical Education and Health. Moore received a master's degree in Athletic Administration from George Mason in 1992, and served as an assistant baseball coach at George Mason from 1990 to 1994.
In 1994, Moore entered the business of Major League Baseball, joining the Atlanta Braves as a scout. He later served as an assistant director of scouting, assistant director of player development, and director of international scouting before his promotion in 2002 to director of player personnel development. He took over as Braves Assistant General Manager in August 2005. In November 2005, Moore interviewed with the Boston Red Sox for their GM opening, but withdrew his name from consideration after the first interview. Moore then was offered a job with the Kansas City Royals and took the job on June 8, 2006.
