Earlier this season, Rhys Hoskins introduced us to his lovable dog named Rookie:

Unfortunately for Rookie, Hoskins was busy last night impressively mashing 37 bombs over two rounds at the Home Run Derby, so someone had to look after the little guy. Enter teammate/shortstop/third baseman/outfielder/dog-sitter Scott Kingery, who hung with Rookie while Hoskins went to work.

Apparently, Rookie wasn’t impressed with the competition:

That’s…pretty damn adorable.

If Hoskins participates again next year, perhaps Major League Baseball will consider switching over to tennis balls for the Derby, so Rookie can chase them down in the outfield.
