The New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Class AA; Eastern League) will honor their bat dog Ollie with a specialty jersey on June 12. Ollie, a golden retriever who has been with the Fisher Cats since 2010, will be depicted on the team’s jersey, while the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a “pawtographed hat.”
June 12 will be Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. The jerseys will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Manchester Police Athletic League (MPAL),

As part of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, the jerseys will be auctioned off during the game to benefit MPAL. The festivities include special recognition and performances by the NHPA Pipes & Drums Band, local K9 officers and more. Fans will also be able to see law enforcement vehicles on display at the ballpark.
