This Umpire Who Took A Bat Away From “Finn, The Bat Dog” Is The Worst Person On Earth

This Umpire Who Took A Bat Away From “Finn, The Bat Dog” Is The Worst Person On Earth

When covering sports, you will see things that shock, satisfy, sadden and emotionally pull at your heart strings.

One of the things that will pull at your heart strings is “Finn, the Bat Dog,” a VERY GOOD BOY who serves as the bat-retriever (no pun) for the Las Vegas Aviators, formerly the Las Vegas 51’s, the AAA affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.


But, sports will also anger you.

One of those things that anger? Look at this absolute scum of the earth umpire on Tuesday night in the Aviators’ game against the Sacramento Rivercats:

Rightfully so, the ump was booed into oblivion by all in attendance. However, look at Finn! He did not get frustrated or angry, he just tracked the bat down and continued on with his job because he is a furry angel sent from above.

Imagine you were doing your job and were just inches away from completing your goal, only to have someone literally toss it away from you! You would probably be livid.

Not Finn, though. He, like all dogs, just wants to be happy and make us undeserving humans happy, as well. I’m sure the ump does, indeed, feel like garbage for interrupting Finn’s work and has asked for forgiveness.

It’s okay, Blue, I know that Finn does.

The good news for Finn is that he is getting plenty of love and support online:

To help yourself feel better about this tragedy, take in these videos of Finn at his best:
