... now he has his own BBQ sauce. Proceeds going to a local food pantry he's been associated with for years.

Butler and his wife, Katie, started the “Hit-It-A-Ton” foundation as a way to raise food for needy families in Kansas City. According to the “Hit-It-A-Ton” website, the Bishop Sullivan Center distributes over a ton of food each day it operates to needy families in Kansas City through two pantries and a community kitchen.

Butler donates to the cause with his bat. Every time Butler hits a home run, he donates a ton of food (it costs $250 to obtain and distribute a ton of food), and for each double, he donates a half a ton of food ($125).

You can do your part simply by buying a bottle of the barbecue sauce, which has Butler’s smiling face on it. Is it destined to be a collector’s item like Reggie Bars or Billy Beer? Maybe, but admit it: you gotta try this stuff, right?

That leads me to one last tweet from Butler: “You can order from http://Zarda.com or http://originaljuan.com ! All proceeds go to @Hit_It_A_Ton_KC and feeding families in KC!”

Just another reason why Billy is one of my favorites. Hell of a ball player and a hell of a guy!
