Hank the #BallparkPup Added to Milwaukee Roster; Set for Travel to Wisconsin on Sunday
Less than one month ago, he was wandering the streets of Phoenix. Now, he’s officially a Milwaukee Brewer.
It was announced today that Hank, “The Ballpark Pup,” will make the move north to Milwaukee this Sunday on a Southwest Airlines Charter flight, joining Brewers executives, sponsors and family members on the flight to Mitchell International Airport.
Dignitaries expected to be on hand for Hank’s airport arrival include Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
From sun to snow, the next chapter of the pop culture icon begins this week.
“There are so many people who have been part of the ‘Hank story;’ fans, players and coaches, front office staff, media, and all of those in his circle of caregivers,” said Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin. “We’re grateful to have an opportunity to make Hank a permanent member of the Brewers family, but even more important, we’re thrilled that he is going to a great family that will ensure that he is loved and comfortable in his new Wisconsin home.”
