C-10 Podcast: Dayton Moore, Ep. 23

  We have a unique episode for you this week. As you may have seen — or you might’ve been on the original call — this week we began closing down the Crown Town Challenge campaign with a celebration webinar on leadership with three tremendous leaders. One of those was Dayton Moore. After the first hour of the webinar with the three leaders, Dayton Moore and Matt Fulks spent the last 30 minutes answering viewer … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Richard Myers, Ep. 15

  This is a special episode. And a fascinating one as we talk with retired 4-star General and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a Kansas City native and the current president of Kansas State University, Richard Myers. It’s particularly fascinating when hearing General Myers talks about leadership as someone who sat in the Oval Office countless times during a tumultuous time in our country’s history. Joining host Matt Fulks this week is … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dayton Moore

  Welcome to the C-10 Podcast, where we talk with various community-minded individuals about leadership and mentoring. There’s no better way to start this podcast series than with “C” You In The Major Leagues Founder and Royals General Manager Dayton Moore. In our maiden voyage, Dayton and Matt Fulks sit down outside to discuss Dayton’s vision for the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program, his leadership philosophy, the importance of mentoring…and Dayton takes on the “7 … Read more

COMPETITOR: Dayton on Competing

This month’s “C” word is COMPETITOR, which, in the “C” You In The Major Leagues’ lingo, means someone that has the desire and ability to compete; high expectations; is tough-minded; and brings the best out of teammates. During his regular Friday morning chat with Bob Fescoe on 610 Sports Radio, our Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore took the definition a step further. Competing — the desire to compete — is perhaps the most important … Read more

CHARACTER: Dayton Moore on what it means

This month’s “C” word has been CHARACTER. In the CYITML lexicon, traits of CHARACTER: Applies moral principles; Learns from mistakes; Accepts responsibility; and Respects individuals. Periodically throughout the year, we’ll get more in-depth with CYITML Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore about that month’s word. Since CHARACTER is such a big part of how we approach our work with the foundation, and the way each of us should approach life, it seems to be a … Read more

SUPPORTER SPOTLIGHT: Dr. Elbie Loeb

  Name: Dr. Elbie Loeb Occupation: Retired Physician   You’ve been a “C” You In The Major Leagues supporter since 2015, when the foundation was still relatively young. What made you want to get involved? Dr. Elbie Loeb: I previously volunteered for Operation Breakthrough, working with inner city preschool children — I think that this organization is a continuation in helping to lift the children from poverty. I know it helps their self-esteem in building … Read more

SUPPORTER SPOTLIGHT: Mike Trigg

Name: Mike Trigg Occupation: Investment Management Mike, your introduction to “C” You In The Major Leagues was similar to a lot of people. Yet different. You invited Dayton to speak to your company, WCM Investment Management, which is how many people first hear about the foundation. But you’re not based here in Kansas City; you’re in California. What made you want to bring Dayton to Laguna Beach to speak with your group, which, coincidentally, was … Read more

Supporter Spotlight: 2017 Impact

At least once a month during 2018 — generally on the first Friday of each month — we’re going to have a “Supporter Spotlight” for one of our weekly blog posts. A supporter is anyone who’s well, supporting people in need in Kansas City through “C” You In The Major Leagues. One month it may be a written Q&A with a volunteer. The next month it could be a video interview with a donor. We’re … Read more

2017 was a year of TEAM

As we close out 2017 and look ahead to 2018, we want to thank you for your support of “C” You In The Major Leagues. Whether you’ve donated your money or your time, you’ve been vital to changing lives in Kansas City in 2017. You’ve undoubtedly heard the acronym TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More. Usually TEAM is preached by countless coaches across the country, but away from sports, perhaps nowhere is that acronym more evident … Read more

Wiffle Ball at the Hollow a perfect success … almost

It’s safe to say our inaugural “Wiffle Ball at the Hollow” was a great success. People had fun in spite of the heat. There was free ice cream and coffee. And we exceeded our announced fundraising goal (more on that in the coming days). Perfect, right? Well, almost. During the lunch part, after our Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore finished the Q&A, I got back up to thank our sponsors and announce the results … Read more

“C” You At The “K” was a great success

The young man sheepishly walked up to me on his way to the buffet. He almost whispered when he asked, “Mr. Fulks, are we able to go through the line only one time or can I eat a little more food?” “Yes, please, go through as many times as you like! We want you guys to eat until the food is gone.” That may seem like a very basic conversation to many, but it’s one … Read more

Summitt embodied “C” leadership

  The coach looked at his star player during the timeout, knowing that, if she could steal the ball, it would help cut the opponent’s five-point lead in the last couple of minutes. He still had four timeouts. “OK, you’re on defense,” the coach roared out to his star. The horn sounded, and the do-it-all player went back on the court on defense. As had been mapped out, she stole the ball from the bigger … Read more

MTAS 2.0 is here!

Occasionally, I’m asked for “secrets” of writing a book. Although this isn’t necessarily what people are looking for, here’s a trade secret: most authors don’t go into a book project, particularly nonfiction, with the idea of adding new chapters and updating it for a re-release. On the contrary, speaking for myself, writing a book is usually so draining, mentally and physically, that I don’t even want to think about the subject again until the book … Read more

As a leader, where’s your heart?

During the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the honor of introducing our founder and executive director Dayton Moore before he’s spoken to two groups. One was a group of Kansas City area business professionals, hosted by a realty group. The second was (mainly) Christian business leaders. I’ve introduced Dayton at events before, but in these two latest times, it was appropriate to talk about him as a leader. And, in both instances, when talking … Read more

Thank you for a great 2015!

Thank you. Two simple words that many of us don’t say enough. Today marks the end of not only 2015 but also, basically, our second year of the “C” You In The Major Leagues Foundation. So, I want to say thank you for supporting us in the early part of our journey. Whether you’ve made a donation to the foundation, attended an event, bought a copy of the More Than A Season book, or bid during … Read more

Lessons from the 2015 Royals

  Recently I went to a book discussion at the Plaza branch of the Kansas City Library. The book, titled Just Let ‘Em Play, was written by former Royals great Jeff Montgomery, sport psychologist Dr. Andrew Jacobs, and former Olympic swim coach Peter Malone. The book is written for parents, coaches, and young athletes. (In full disclosure, I co-authored it.) During the discussion, the question was asked: what can young athletes learn from the 2015 Kansas … Read more

Congrats to our founder and executive director

  Although we’re a few days late, we need to congratulate the founder and executive director of the C You In the Major Leagues Foundation, Dayton Moore, who was selected as the 2015 winner of the Esurance MLB Award for Best Executive. The ceremony was held earlier this month during baseball’s Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tenn. This award has been nine years in the making for Dayton and the Royals. See, for many of us, whether through blind faith … Read more
