The Savannah Bananas,an amateur baseball team inSavannah, Georgia, should win some sort of award for the awesomest name and also the best mascots.
Along with Split, the team’s official mascot, they recently added a new member to the team that they weren’t planning on including.
Aticket salesperson at the Grayson Stadium founda7-week-old puppy with no tags, collar, or microchip crying alone in the parking lot because some heartless human simply dropped it off.
Luckily the the team president, Jared Orton, and his wife, were looking to expand the roster and quickly adopted the pup.
They named her Daisy and said she will will work alongside the rest of the Bananas as its first bat dog.
It was just meant to be that wed have a team dog as part of our staff, Orton said. We took Daisy to the vet and aside from being hungry and dehydrated, she was in pretty good health.
As bat dog, Daisy comes in to the office every day to help ship out Bananas merchandise and greet visitors, andwill undergo training to learn how to fetch baseballs and pick up bats from the field.
Orton said theystill dont really know how big shes going to get,and that in the next year or so theyll have an idea of her size and what she can do. For now, she’s settling comfortably into her customer service role.
She also certainly wants to put on a show, said Orton. So I think its perfect.
