Hank the "Ballpark Pup" Added to Brewers Roster

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX, AZ (WKOW) -- Less than one month ago he wandered into the Milwaukee Brewer's spring training facility, and now he's officially a Milwaukee Brewer.

The team announced Friday that Hank will be moving to Milwaukee on Sunday, joining Brewers executives on a flight to Mitchell International Airport.

Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin says, "We're grateful to have an opportunity to make Hank a permanent member of the Brewers family, but even more important, we're thrilled that he is going to a great family that will ensure that he is loved and comfortable in his new Wisconsin home."

Hank has been permanently adopted by the family of a Brewers executive.

The Brewers say they have received more than 1,000 offers from others to adopt Hank and provide him with a loving "forever home."

During spring training Hank has made numerous appearances at games, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society.

Since becoming the Brewer's unofficial mascot, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars for the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies.
