Now Pitching, Uno

Uno the Beagle became the first Beagle to win "Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club annual soiree back in February. Yesterday, he may very well have become the first Beagle to throw out the first pitch at a Major League baseball game.

Crazy, you say? A dog throwing out the first pitch?. Uno indeed threw out the first pitch in Saturday's game between the Cincinnati Reds and Miwaukee Brewers.

He also played a playful game of "catch" with Brewers pitcher Jeff Suppan, and was interviewed after the game.
Reporter: “So Uno -- what do you think of Milwaukee?”

Uno: “Yeowp!”

Reporter: “How did you train for the first pitch?”

Uno goes after unattended fondue pot.

Reporter: "Is it true you have your own harness and seat when you travel Midwest Airlines?"

Uno goes after unattended nachos.

Reporter: “Will you give your new friend Jeff Suppan back the glove you stole from him in the dug-out?”

Uno: No.

Uno may now be the most popular "person" in Milwaukee since Hank Aaron.
