This Father's Day, take time out to celebrate some of baseball's premier dog dads

Father's Day is pretty much exclusively reserved to celebrate the relationship between humans -- father and son or daughter. Without dads, none of us would be here, and so on.

But what about the dog dads? A number of baseball players are quick to share their "children" on social media frequently, and it makes for a great alternative way to think about Father's Day. So, with that in mind, here's a selection of some of the best dog dads in the game today.

Mike Trout is a friend to all dogs -- especially his own, Juno, the biggest star of the Trout family.

Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo and his wife, Chelsea, have a dapper lil' pup named Jake in their lives, and he's adorable:

Carlos Correa and his wife, Daniella, live with a pair of guardians-in-training, Groot and Rocket:

And say hello to Enrique Hernández, Mariana, Arizona and Bruce.

Congrats on the great lil' pup, Rookie, Rhys Hoskins!

Rays lefty Blake Snell has a solid gaming crew at the ready at all times:

While Amir Garrett goes out on fashionable photo shoots with his pups:

This only scratches the surface on baseball dog dads, of course, but it's a pretty good start. Happy Father's Day to all dads -- human dads, dog dads, cat dads, fish dads, and all general pet dads!
