Billy Butler says he doesn’t believe his time with the Royals organization is finished despite signing with the Oakland A’s as a free agent this offseason. “It’s disappointing, but you understand that the game’s a business and I didn’t leave on bad terms,” the designated hitter said Sunday in Springfield as he was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. “I’d be more than happy to come back. That’s home for me.” He is pictured with Lorenzo Cain at the season celebration Oct. 30 at Kauffman Stadium after the Royals lost to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.
