Meet the Lexington Legends’ bat dog, whose bite is stronger than his bark

The Lexington Legends made a new signing this offseason, and he electrifies the fans whenever he steps on the field. Tech the bat dog comes on in the home half of the second and fourth innings every Bark in the Park night to retrieve the Legends’ bats from around home plate. But P.R. Gerrow’s 8-year-old Belgian Malinois had to go through his own spring training before taking the field on opening day.

He leads the minor leagues in homers. Can he be a star in the majors?

The Lexington Legends' coaches and staff say that 19-year-old Seuly Matias has the potential to be an MLB All-Star. Matias leads all of minor league baseball in home runs and was recently named to the South Atlantic League All-Star team.
