Butler press conference notes
Billy Butler and Dayton Moore met with reporters on Tuesday to discuss Butler’s new long-term contract. The 24-year old Butler is proud to wear a Kansas City uniform and excited about the future of the organization. Butler and his family have always felt welcomed in the city and he looks forward to continuing his relationship with fans and the community.
Billy is looking forward to playing alongside some of the Royals’ highly-heralded prospects. He’s not making guarantees, but he has high expectations for himself and the team.
Dayton Moore believes that Butler has separated himself as one of the top young hitters in the game. Moore cited that Butler broke into the Major Leagues at a young age and was successful in a short time period, which isn’t easy. He recognizes Butler’s passion and that Butler wants to go from being a good hitter to a great hitter.
