Chase the Retriever, chases balls, retrieves them

In Uncategorized on June 10, 2008 at 3:47 pm

Check out this cute—and talented—pooch: Chase, a Golden Retriever, is the designated bat-retriever for the Trenton Thunder minor league baseball team. After each hit, when the player starts towards first base, he tosses his bat to the ground. Normally, a ball boy would retriever it, but the Thunder thought the job was better suited for… a Retriever! How cute is that? Even better?

Chase even appeared on a Thunder baseball card last year with the team’s “other” Chase, left-handed starting pitcher Chase Wright, who started a few games for the Yankees last season, and is now pitching in Trenton again.

We’ve been fans of Chase for a while now, but with baseball season kicking into high gear, it seemed like a good time to point one of our favorite pooches, who is involved in one of our favorite pastimes.
