When you think of breakfast sausage, it's Jimmy Dean. Chicken…Colonel Sanders. Now when you think of barbeque, it's Randy Jones. The easily approachable and personable Jones became famous as one of the outstanding Major League baseball pitchers in the 1970's and '80's. Randy brings his “major league” style of excellence to the food business with his Original Ballpark Barbeque sauce, based on a recipe developed by his grandfather. He also operated a major catering and special events company, the historic Randy Jones Big Stone Lodge Restaurant, and a popular barbeque concession at San Diego Qualcomm Stadium. Randy's Original Baseball Barbeque Sauce remains a fan favorite sold at Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego Padres Stores, Petco Park and specialty markets in Southern California.

Randy's extensive record as an innovator and businessman encompasses activities as wide-ranging as having founded a successful alternative energy company, executive management positions with AGS Foods - serving worldwide military commissary divisions, and the specialty merchandising and advertising company, Tournament Providers.

While earning his bachelor's degree in business administration at Chapman University in the Los Angeles area, Randy was a stalwart of the university baseball team. Drafted by the San Diego Padres in 1972, and with a record of 22-14 he won the 1976 Cy Young Award, baseball's top pitching accolade while setting Padres' records of 316 innings pitched, with 25 complete games. Randy's achievements were recognized with his selection as National League starting pitcher in the 1976 All-Star Game, which he also won. The previous season he was San Diego's first pitcher to appear in an All-Star Game.

The affable lefty is the spokesperson for the San Diego Padres, hosts his own radio show heard throughout Southern California and has starred in his sportsman television program, “Randy Jones' Strike Zone” on the Outdoor Channel, seen nationally in 85 million homes since January 2005. His ongoing involvement with the Padres and on-air hosting on radio provide many door-opening opportunities and media exposure.

He is a radio and TV sports personality and still serves as a representative for the Padres in the San Diego sports and business community.
