Hometown Hero: Billy Butler

This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Ponaganset’s Billy Butler.

The junior hit .416 with 31 RBI’s this season, earning postseason MVP honors while helping the Chieftains to their second straight D-II title. The back to back crowns were the first in school history.

Butler’s success this season has earned him interest from college programs and he’s hoping a strong summer playing AAU and Legion ball will help him fulfill his dream of earning a Division I scholarship.
