When a Major League Baseball player has to do a stint in the minor leagues, they are usually a huge draw for fans. When that player is Alex Rodriguez, it's an even bigger event. Unfortunately for A-Rod, he was easily upstaged by the Trenton Thunders batboy. Well, bat-DOG actually. Derby is second generation bat-dog, and a major star in his own right.
After a game against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, A-Rod posted a tweet showing off Derby enjoying his job retrieving a bat for another player. No one can resist Derby, and even the most popular name in baseball can't deny Derby is the real star!

You can see some of Derby's amazing work below. And next time you're in New Jersey, stop by and watch him work!
