Brewers’ unofficial mascot to have his own bobblehead night
First Published Mar 28 2014 01:02 am • Last Updated Mar 29 2014 07:50 pm
Milwaukee • The Milwaukee Brewers announced Thursday that popular pup Hank will have his own bobblehead night in September.
Hank is the little dog who wandered into the Brewers’ complex at spring training. The stray became the unofficial team mascot, and is now living in Milwaukee with the family of a club executive.
Bobblehead Hank night will be Sept. 13 against Cincinnati at Miller Park.
Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler says the team wants to help other animals in need. Part of the ticket sales from the bobblehead night will go to the "Hank Fund" at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
The Brewers will also hold an adopt-a-pet event at the ballpark that night.
