Jake The Diamond Dog Will Melt Your Heart

Minor league baseball is getting something right, by having Jake the Diamond Dog be the best damn waterboy we’ve ever seen.

Monday night at the Fort Wayne TinCaps game, the incredibly good Golden Retriever brought water to thirsty umpires between innings. Zach Groth, sports anchor at ABC21 WPTA News, posted this video of the pup doing his very important job.

A focused Jake eagerly brings out a little basket full of water bottles to the ump, and is rewarded with lots of scratches. WHO’S A GOOD BOY? After waiting patiently for the ump to rehydrate, Jake, like the professional he is, trots back near the dugout to wait for the next thirsty official, unfazed by the action around him.

This isn’t the first time Jake has worked in baseball — he is a seasoned pro. Here he is serving as  batboy during another game. He is obviously a great utility player.
