LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville's favorite four-legged friend is set to "throw" out the first pitch at the Louisville Bats game Friday. Ethan the dog will take the mound at 7 p.m. as the Bats play the Toledo Mud Hens.
Ethan's recovery captivated the city as the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) attempted to save his life after he was left at the organization emaciated. The dog was later adopted after in March by KHS's facilities director.
Louisville Slugger Field is hosting it's first ever Hops and Hounds event presented by Club K9 & the Louisville Ale Trail. Owners are welcome to take their dogs to the game in designated sections of the stadium.
Additionally, a Hops and Hounds ticket package is available for guests. The pack includes a game ticket, choice of three local craft beers and a souvenir mug.
To attend the game with your pet, your dog must have a ticket as well. For more information on Hops and Hounds night, click here.
Good luck to Ethan for his big night on the mound!
