Last night was what appears to be the highlight of the event the Home Run Derby, which was won by Yoenis Céspedes of the Oakland A's. I know many of my furrends and readers aren't baseball fans but what's not to like about grown men chasing balls all over the nicely manicured lawn. We cats and woofies would love to be out there if we had a chance. This brings me to the story of one who did.
RIP ChaseThe Yankees' minor league affiliate the Trenton Thunder's beloved bat dog, Chase That Golden Thunder, went OTRB on July 9th, just days after the team held a retirement party for him. Chase had been retrieving bats for the Thunder for a decade and was diagnosed with cancer in February. He's survived by two sons, Derby and Ollie, both of whom are bat dogs. Derby will take over in the role for the Trenton Thunder. The team axed fans wishing to honor Chase to donate to an animal shelter/pet rescue in their local communities.
