The Milwaukee Brewers have a new unofficial mascot this spring, Hank the Ballpark Pup.

He's not Bernie Brewer or one of the famous sausage racers, but that didn't stop the furry guy from stealing the show at a Brewers spring training game.

Dressed in an awesome hot-dog costume, Hank the Ballpark Pup got to participate in the Klement’s Sausage Race:

The dog got off to a shaky start, but he will get better with experience. Hopefully the Brewers will let him run in the races at Miller Park throughout the summer.
