As he sat beside a contrite Danny Duffy on Tuesday afternoon and fielded questions about the left-hander's recent arrest for driving under the influence,Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore offered insight into some of the ways his club attempts to steer players away from potentially harmful decisions.
Asked about new educational protocols put in place following the death of former Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura, who was killed in a January car crash after he lost his control of his Jeep Wrangler in his native Dominican Republic, Moore told reporters the team not only attempts to educate its players about the consequences of using drugs and alcohol, but also about the effects of pornography, which, he contended, can lead to violence against women.
"We’ve done a lot of leadership stuff with our players,” Moore said, via Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star. "(We're) very transparent about things that happen in our game, not only with drugs and alcohol. We talk about pornography, and the effects of what that does to the minds of players and the distractions, and how that leads to abuse of - domestic abuse - to abuse of women. How it impacts relationships - we talk about a lot of things. And I don't mind sharing with you."
These protocols were put in place to "protect" the Royals' players from the "different ills of society," Moore said, adding that he thinks his club should "constantly look at ways to help improve the character" of its players.
“These guys grow up playing the game that they love to play," Moore explained. "They have the freedom and the choices of manhood. But oftentimes, they don’t have those responsibilities. Because we don’t allow them to have those responsibilities. We do a lot for them, because we want them to compete every single day at the highest level against the best of the best. And we want to protect them from different ills of society, so they can go out there and do what we love to do and celebrate what they do on the field.
"So do I think we should constantly look at ways to help improve the character and help mold and shape our players? I do."

The perfect melding of right- and left-wing nutjob, proven factually inaccurate by every study ever conducted.

While educating them on booze and porn, they need a little education on run-scoring. I think they just ended their scoreless drought this week!

Hope the "different ills of society" do not include George Brett's spring training seminars about crapping your pants.

The Royals lectured again on the evils of porn.



Last summer, during a press conference about pitcher Danny Duffy’s DUI arrest, Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore went off on a surprising tangent about the danger of pornography. That lecture caught the attention of an anti-pornography organization called Fight the New Drug, and six months or so later, the team and the advocacy group have partnered on what the latter calls a “fight for love” but what someone else might call a crusade against porn.
Last weekend, Fight the New Drug showed up to Royals Spring Training to offer a presentation to 200 players, coaches, trainers, and staff members. Moore spoke, as did relief pitcher Blaine Boyer.


The presentation seems to have resonated with at least one member of the Royals organization. Fight the New Drug posted to Instagram a message from minor-league strength and conditioning coach Austin Womack, in which Womack described being addicted to porn in high school and college and said it was “an honor” to listen to Fight the New Drug founder Clay Olsen.


If you are wondering what any of this has to do with baseball or why an organization should care what its employees do (legally) on their own time in their own bedrooms, you’re not alone. Via the New York Post, here’s how Moore described it back in August, after Duffy’s DUI.

“We’ve done a lot of leadership stuff with our players,” said Moore, a devout Christian. “Very transparent about things that happen in our game. Not only with drugs and alcohol — we talk about pornography and the effects, what that does to the minds of players and the distractions, and how that leads to abuse of — domestic abuse, abuse of women. How it impacts relationships. We talk about a lot of things, and I don’t mind sharing them with you.”
Well, there you have it. The Royals are not big fans of pornography.

Forget about the fact that every studies proves the opposite, and that in this environment in particular it would behoove rich and high-profile young people to sit home and jerk off to porn rather than interact with women at clubs and bars and become targets.  No, no, a baseball GM clearly knows better.  He's a bright guy.

I'm surprised the Players' Union is putting up with this bs.

Why would they care about porn? Better to have a player holed up in his hotel room watching adult entertainment than have him out interacting with some conniving ho who is going wind up filing charges against him.
