Baseball team adopts abandoned puppy, names it to their roster — PHOTOS

The Savannah Bananas, an amateur baseball team in Georgia, has added an adorable new member to its roster — a puppy.

Daisy, a seven-week-old puppy, was found abandoned in the parking lot of the team’s stadium a few weeks ago and the team decided to adopt her and make her the Bat Dog for the season.

“It was just meant to be that we’d have a team dog as part of our staff,” Team President Jared Orton said in a press release. “We took Daisy to the vet and aside from being hungry and dehydrated, she was in pretty good health.”

Daisy is at the office every day, according to the team, and helps greet visitors.

“We aren’t sure how big she’ll get, so it’s hard to say if she’ll be able to pick up a bat or just coach first base,” Orton said. “As she grows, she’ll be a fixture at the ballpark.”

The Bananas play in the Coastal Plain League, a collegiate summer baseball league, and open their season on June 2.
