An Indians Minor League team will allow dogs at every home game
What's the best day you've spent at a ballpark? Was it when your team won the World Series? When Adrian Beltre hit that crazy home run from his knees? When you ate that hot dog with fruit loops on it?
No, none of these. The best day during any baseball season is, of course, Bark at the Park:
And now, thanks to the Lynchburg Hillcats, this day will be during every home game (and for a good cause, too). Here's more about the initiative from the Indians' Class A affiliate:
"As far as I know, we will be the first 100-percent dog-friendly ballpark for an entire season," said [team president Chris] Jones. "Virtually every team holds a 'Bark in the Park' Day at this point, and they are extremely popular with fans. In past years, the Hillcats have hosted more than one of these in the same season, which caused us as a staff to ask why we couldn't do it more. Expanding 'Bark in the Park' to every home game seemed like a fun way to help grow awareness and signify this partnership with the Lynchburg Humane Society."
See you guys there. The Hillcats will also have "Meow Mondays" which, if it involves bringing cats to the park, could make things verrrry interesting.
