On MiLB.com, Rookie’s likes are listed as “baseballs, baseball bats, belly rubs and treats,” but his top rival is still the vacuum cleaner. The site notes that Rookie is training to be a bat-dog like Derby, his father who retrieves bats during every home Trenton Thunder game, and grandfather Chase “That Golden Thunder,” who died last year.
“It really started with Chase, who was the most important mascot we had. We’re really happy to pay homage to our dog lineage because there’s a bloodline there that isn’t lost on fans,” Smith said.
While there were other non-costumed character mascots in the first round of the voting, Rookie is the only real life mascot left in the voting.
