Bat dog replaces bat boys at ACC tourney

GREENSBORO, NC (WFIE) -

Players at the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament have a new helper.

Ms. Lou Lou Gehrig, a black Labrador, is chasing down the bats for the players at the tourney in Greensboro, North Carolina.
 
It's a tough job as she hustles back and forth from the dugout to the field to retrieve the bats to take them back to the on-deck circle. 
 
Miss Lou Lou is normally employed as the bat dog for the Greensboro Grasshoppers. However, officials with the ACC tournament hired her to retrieve their aluminum bats for the tournament.
