Security is tight at baseball spring training complexes in Florida and in Arizona, where the Milwaukee Brewers spring training home base is located. But one day, as a ball dropped into the outfield, there came a long a non-rostered player to make a diving catch.
A little Bichon Frise-mix wandered off the street and into camp.
The team responsibly posted "found dog" signs - but so far no one has claimed the new team ball boy....in fact, Hank, named for Hank Aaron has become the team unofficial mascot.
Officials say he might make camp and head back with the top players to Milwaukee....If so, those racing sausage might become lunch.
