with great sadness that the Trenton Thunder pass along news that 13-year-old team bat dog, Chase That Golden Thunder
, passed away on Monday.
'In his 11 years with the team, he has been featured on local, national and international television. He became the first dog to go onto the field at Yankee Stadium, and was featured in the July issue of Yankee Magazine, Lipsman said.
Chase was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma — blood cancer — in February, and has been suffering from arthritis. He spent much of this week in the hospital, Lipsman said.
“He’s a brave dog and I just wanted him to be out there to hear those cheers,” he said.'
