Gettin’ a little misty in Chez Shyster. A tweet from the Royals’ Billy Butler a few minutes ago:
Didn’t get the win
in the end but I’m glad my Grandpa Butler got to watch me one last

Grandpa Butler left the Earth after seeing his grandson hit a two-out two-run single off one of the best pitchers in baseball in front of a packed house.
