Bat-retrieving dog dies after being honored

(Continued)

TRENTON, N.J. —

Last month, he was also honored on the field at Yankee Stadium. Chamberlain petted Chase before the game and infielder David Adams came over to greet his old friend.

Adams recalled Chase retrieving his bat, doing it without leaving teeth marks in the wood.

"He's not chomping at the bit," Adams said then. "Or at the bat, either."

Dogs of all shapes and sizes were at Trenton's game Friday night against Reading, sitting in the stands with their owners. As fans filed in, Chase lounged on the grass outside the Thunder's dugout on the first-base side.

A tribute to Chase's career was shown on the video board. Chase was in position near the bench when Eduardo Nunez — who has since rejoined the Yankees — led off for Trenton in the bottom of the first inning. After the at-bat, Chase trotted out, picked up Nunez's bat and returned to the dugout to a big cheer from the crowd.
