KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The general manager of the World Series champion Royals is helping with an annual Christmas tradition in Kansas City.

On Friday night, Dayton Moore will join Kansas City Mayor Sly James in lighting a 100-foot tall Douglas fir in front of Crown Center. Called the Mayor’s Christmas Tree, it draws public attention to a nonprofit organization that helps the needy during the holidays.

The ceremony comes less than a month after an estimated 800,000 people crowded downtown Kansas City for a parade to celebrate the Royals’ first World Series championship in 30 years.
