Everybody’s Favorite Ripken

Sorry, O’s fans, everybody’s favorite Ripken is not Cal. He’s not human, either. Nope, it’s Ripken the Bat Dog of the Durham Bulls. He fetches bats back to the dugout after each at bat.

He has his own Twitter page: @RipkenTheBatDo

Here he is in action: https://www.usatoday.com/videos/sports/sportskind/2022/08/18/ripken-black-lab-best-bat-retriever-baseball/10350662002/

He’s a 6-year-old black lab…and knows not to chase balls in play.

Don’t feel bad, O’s fans. He’s also everybody’s favorite member of the Rays organization.
