WATCH: Dog Catches Home Run Ball At Dodgers Spring Training Game

Videos by OutKick

When you think about the Dodgers and a Dodger Dog, an actual canine doesn’t usually come to mind.

In one of the more impressive games of fetch we’ve ever seen, a dog caught a home run ball during a Spring Training game at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were trailing the Kansas City Royals 5-2 in the seventh inning. Dodgers second baseman Michael Busch blasted the long ball over the wall in left-center field.

And as fans scrambled for the ball, the K-9 trained pup casually scooped it up.

Just look how proud his owner is!

Unfortunately for Dodgers fans, that dinger turned out to be the last run of the game for Los Angeles. The Royals won 6-3.

But it was a much-needed diversion from the dog days of Spring Training. We’ve almost made it, though! First pitch of the regular season happens Thursday.

That’s not the first time a pup made the highlight reel at a baseball game, by the way. Last October, a golden retriever named Renegade snagged a home run from Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor in the upper deck at Citi Field.

Check out this clip of a dog that went viral last fall.

Afterward, Renegade’s owner, Chris Howland, shared photos and video of the pup on social media. Sadly, though, he didn’t let the good boy or his brother keep the ball.

“They have plenty of balls. These dogs are spoiled,” Howland told MLB.com. “I’ll keep this one for the story.”
