Finn, the 'bat dog' for the Las Vegas Aviators, was given some extra duties during Thursday night's game against the El Paso Chihuahuas. As the temperature in Vegas soared into the 90s Finn was given a blue cooler filled with water to bring to the umpires in between innings.
In a video shared to Finn's Twitter account, the fan-favorite pooch was given the cooler and ran over to the first base umpire to deliver him a bottle of water. After the umpire grabbed a bottle of water from the cooler, Finn rushed back onto the field to retrieve the blue cooler and bring it back to the Aviator's dugout.
Finn has become a staple at the Aviators brand new ballpark, collecting bats dropped by players after they get a hit. In one game in early April, an umpire received a loud chorus of boos after he picked up the bat and tossed it away before Finn could do his job.
