A Minor League Baseball game was interrupted by a playful dog on Wednesday night at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, NY.

Rookie the Bat Dog ran onto the field when a pitch was about to be thrown in the bottom of the first inning of a Triple-A game between the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia Phillies affiliate) and Buffalo Bisons (Toronto Blue Jays affiliate).

The Golden Retriever usually serves as Bat Dog for the Trenton Thunder, but he was in Buffalo on Wednesday because A) it was “dog day” at the ballpark, and B) Buffalo played home games in Trenton earlier this season, so he got a chance to visit his Bisons friends.

Even with Wednesday’s hiccup, Rookie is still a very good boy.
