MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The Milwaukee Brewers have not finalized their roster yet -- but we do know that Hank made the team.
The stray dog that endeared himself to fans at the Brewers' spring training camp in Arizona will fly north on Sunday night, so he can be neutered before Opening Day on March 31st.
Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger says he'll accompany Hank on a chartered flight. They're due to arrive in Milwaukee at 6:25 p.m. Sunday. Mayor Tom Barrett and Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele plan to meet Hank.
He'll be living with an undisclosed Brewers' executive who has a family. It has not been decided how much time he'll spend at Miller Park when the Brewers play their 81 home games.
Schlesinger says the goal is not to overtax the pet, or exploit him.
Still, you'll probably get a chance to take home a memento of the dog who's named after slugging star Hank Aaron. It could either be a plush toy, or a bobble-head.
