Great tribute to this team “mascot” who is retiring. Deuce is retiring after a long 10-year career (70 years in dog years) of bring balls to the umpires and circling the bases after Pelican wins.
Enjoy your retirement Deuce. Good boy.
“The umpires stood on the first-base line and removed their hats while he ran his final lap,” Kristin Call, the Pelicans’ senior director of marketing, said. “I thought that was a nice gesture.” Read more in this great story from Dog O’Day.
Since 2008, Deuce has greeted fans in the Pro Shop, run the umpires fresh baseballs, and circled the bases after each Bird's win. Tonight, after 10 years, we celebrate the best known dog in Myrtle Beach and wish this very good boy a happy retirement.
Thank you, Deuce. pic.twitter.com/fiBKxvr3yR
