Dog steals the show at MLB game by catching home run ball

Dogs are naturals at catching balls, and there’s nothing they love more than a good game of fetch.

And this weekend, one dog made the catch of a lifetime at a Major League Baseball spring training game by being the lucky fan to snag a home run ball.


During Saturday’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Royals, Dodgers prospect Michael Busch hit a home run in the 7th inning, according to

As the ball soared over the left field wall into the stands, fans jumped up and scrambled to grab it β€” but in the end one fan proved triumphant:

Yes, in an adorable moment that proved to be a highlight of the game, a lucky dog stole the show by catching the home run ball in its mouth.

“Did the dog catch that? Yeah, how about that!” the sports commentators say.

The dog hung on tight to his souvenir but ultimately gave it up to his owner, dressed in a K-9 Dodgers jersey, who held up the ball for the cameras.


It’s many baseball fans’ dream to catch a home run ball, and this lucky dog was certainly the envy of the crowd β€” even though to him, he was just catching a ball like dogs often do.

It was an unusual sight that delighted the crowd, but it’s not the first time a dog has caught a home run ball: in October, a dog caught a home run ball hit by the New York Mets’ Francisco Lindor.

“It’s a chew toy now,” the commentator said.

Good boy! Congrats to this dog on living the dream and catching a home run ball! What an incredible thing to see.
