Kansas City church gives Billy Butler dispensation for stealing

Wednesday October 8th, 2014

On the Kansas City Royals way to winning their first playoff series since 1985, slow-footed designated hitter Billy Butler managed to grab just the sixth stolen base of his eight-year MLB career.

Many people noted the rarity of the event, which came against the Los Angeles Angels, and a Kansas City church posted a special message on its marquee, letting everyone know Butler had a special dispensation from the seventh commandment.
