Video: Dog poops on field during Double-A game

Apr 13, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

Kansas City’s Double-A affiliate, the Arkansas Naturals, apparently have a “team dog” that recently got onto the field mid-inning, was ushered off the field, broke free, and then returned to … well, let’s say leave a little present for the groundskeepers.




Triumph the Insult Comic Dog would surely say that the Naturals have a gorgeous field for … you know.

    I’ll resist the all-too-obvious Royals slams here and just say that this dog was on the field in conjuction with the Springdale, AR pet shelter’s adoptable pet of the week promotion. On the bright side, not only was she adopted, she was responsible for other shelter dogs being adopted:

    And, on the funny side, a dog mascot was ejected from a minor league game last year for pulling the same stunt:

    C’mon, if it was good enough for the Reds during the Schott era, it should be good enough for a AA team.
    And ecp, that certainly is a good cause.

    hmm “dogs, minor leagues, poop, Royals” one of these is not like the others, but I’ll let you decide which :)
