Butler one of four bobblehead promotions

KANSAS CITY -- No jokes allowed. Billy Butler’s teammates are sure to take care of that after they digest this year’s Royals bobblehead news.

Butler will be depicted on the Billy Butler Silver Slugger Bobblehead that will go to the first 10,000 fans at the May 4 game against the White Sox at Kauffman Stadium.

The other three bobbleheads this season? They’re also lovable characters -- from the Hot Dog Derby Race. Yes, it’s Ketchup Bobblehead on May 25 (Angels), Mustard Bobblehead on June 22 (White Sox) and Relish Bobblehead on July 20 (Tigers). All four dates are Saturdays.

Inasmuch as Butler’s nickname is “Country Breakfast,” the bobblehead schedule is a feast, a culinary delight, a gastronomic explosion. Please pass the mustard.
