Chase – The Bat Retrieving Golden Retriever, Dies after Retrirement Party

It is with tears in my eyes that I announce that Chase, the bat retrieving dog for the New York Yankees farm team, the Trenton Thunder has passed away.  Chase celebrated his retirement on Friday at a game against the Reading Phillies  at Arm and Hammer stadium.  Chase was also honored last week at Yankee Stadium.

Golden Retriever Bat Boy Chase to Retire

Fans and stadium goers were encouraged to bring their dogs and Chase bobble-head dogs were given out to the first 2000 attendees.  Now I REALLY need to get my hands on a Chase bobble-head.

No details on Chase’s death at this time, but he passed away on Monday, and had been suffering from a canine lymphoma and arthritis.

Thanks for holding out for us ol’ boy.

Chase’s son Derby has since taken over as bat dog for the Trenton Thunder.

  1. My last Golden was named Chase….I lost him in May of 2011 after almost 12 years…He was a fantastic dog also; must be the name.
