The New York Yankees AA Team, Trenton Thunder, Has A New Bat Boy…Er, Bat Dog [VIDEO]

In reading about this I found out that the team has employed a bat dog for years and "Rookie" is the pup of their old bat dog! Rookie is quite ready for the season, but training is going well.

When Rookie get his first start, he will be the first third-generation bat dog in history! Which...is kind of awesome. You can read the full story on Rookie and the Trenton Thunder from Big League Stew.
