How Milwaukee Brewers’ Hank the Dog Became The Happiest Mascot In Baseball [52 HQ Photos]

Meet Hank the Dog. Just one month ago he was a stray, in bad shape, wandering around the Brewers’ spring training facility in Phoenix, Ariz. looking for food. He was discovered by team management, taken in and adopted by the players and fans alike.

Fast forward to opening day in Milwaukee on March 31st and Hank received one of the loudest standing ovations in Miller Park history.

Not only that but it was announced that he would be honored with a his own Bobblehead night on September 21st with proceeds going to the “Hank Fund,” created by the Milwaukee Humane Society for the care of stray animals.

It is a whirl wind story that not only saved a stray pooch but has also raised countless amounts of money and awareness for the ASPCA.
