BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Bisons played several 'home' games in Trenton, N.J. this season and part of Trenton made his debut at Sahlen Field, Wednesday night.

The Trenton Thunder have a 'bat dog' named Rookie and he made quite the appearance in Buffalo.

During a Buffalo Bisons at-bat in the first inning of their game against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Rookie got a little bit excited, running onto the field interrupting play.

Lots of fans on social media are showing their support for Rookie.

The Bisons ended up losing to the IronPigs 3-0 in a game that was called early due to rain.

On Thursday, Rookie hopped onto Twitter to apologize to Cavan Biggio of the Bisons.
