KANSAS CITY, Mo. --  Billy Butler returns to Kansas City Friday for his first meeting with his first team.

The former Royals player signed with the A's as a free agent in the off-season. Friday night, Butler will receive the ALC ring that he earned last year along with his team. Everyone else has already received theirs.

Fans and his friends in blue seemed ready for the reunion; and to play ball again with Butler, even if he's on the visiting team.
