The Oakland Athletics’ Triple-A affiliate, the Las Vegas Aviators, has an ADORABLE bat dog named Finn.
Finn’s job is to retrieve the bat in between at-bats… It’s his job, and he does it darn well.
During a game against Sacramento, home-plate umpire Tom Woodring (aka “Debbie Downer”) clearly saw Finn running to get the back, quickly picked up the bat and tossed it towards the on-deck circle.
It didn’t seem to phase Finn, as he kept his cool, stayed “professional” and made the best of the situation…
…Good boy, Finn.
