Baseball fans at the Las Vegas baseball stadium joined a chorus of boos Tuesday after a minor league referee appeared to not allow the group's dog to do its job: pick up bats.

The Las Vegas aviators, a Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, were playing against the Sacramento River Cats, a Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants when the incident occurred. And although we know that cats and dogs do not get along, referees are not usually a problem.
Finn the Bat Dog, the Aviator's canine batsman, was seen running to the home plate to retrieve a spare bat. However, the plate umpire hit him and threw the bat aside. Finn, being a good boy (a very good boy), looked for the bat anyway.
The crowd mocked the referee's mistake, broke out in a loud and prolonged boo. Shouts were heard when Finn grabbed the bat and returned it to the dugout at a time that was shared on the dog's Twitter page.
"It could be the strongest boo in referees' history, but I still love them, guys!" He read the tweet.The puppy's social media account shares many moments of his life, including his days off and the many tricks he can do (because, as we said, he's a very good kid).

There are other bat dogs that work in the league. The Trenton Thunder of New Jersey has a (second generation!) Bat dog named Rookie, and Riders Brooks is the dog of the Frisco RoughRiders team.
