Derby And Rookie: Trenton Thunder Bat Dogs

The Trenton Thunder, a minor league baseball affiliate of the NY Yankees, has an unusual way of getting through the dog days of summer. Meet Batdog Derby and his son Rookie, a Batdog in training. During the first inning of every Thunder home game, Derby replaces the regular batboy and retrieves the bats of the home team. We caught up with the dynamic duo during a “Bark in the Park” night, where fans were allowed to bring their own dogs to the game.
