“The Goodest Boy”, Milo The Bat Dog, is the furriest member of the Rochester Red Wings baseball team. With the help of his trusty human, Josh Snyder, a professional dog trainer, Milo’s bat fetching has won over the hearts of thousands of Wings fans and beyond. His appearance at games has not only made him famous but has helped raise money and awareness for local charities, which earns him a round of a-paws, and truly makes him the goodest boy.
