Meet Milo, the newest bat dog in the Nationals organization originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

A day after announcing the new affiliation with the Washington Nationals, the Rochester Red Wings greeted its new MLB team with an important fact: The team has a bat dog.

Everyone, meet Milo, a gorgeous golden retriever pup that can’t wait to fetch bats for the Red Wings. Milo has taken the Nationals family by storm with both the Nationals and their Double-A affiliate, the Harrisburg Senators both showing love on Twitter.

Fingers crossed that the Red Wings will be able to host their annual Bark in the Park game, where Milo can formally be introduced. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 minor league season, and it’s still too soon to know what’s in store for the 2021 season. Regardless, it is pretty clear that the Nationals are now affiliated with not only the Red Wings, but also the bestest boy!
