Hank the Ballpark Pup made the Milwaukee Brewers out of spring training, and the club has wasted no time in honoring the fan favorite.
Milwaukee recently announced the dog will be honored with a bobblehead when the Brewers host the Cincinnati Reds on Sept. 13, which has been named Wisconsin Humane Society Day at Miller Park:
One fan has to be excited about the "BobbleHank":
The stray dog wandered into the Brewers' spring training clubhouse back on Feb. 17. Since then, he has become a beloved member of the organization.
"They [fans] associate the Brewers with Hank—even those who couldn't name a single player," Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger recently said.
The pup hung out with the players throughout the spring, but now he is back in Milwaukee waiting for the start of the regular season.
After he became the story of the spring for Brewers fans, Hank will be given the ultimate sign of respect by getting a bobblehead night in his honor.
