MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - It was the type of arrival fit for a Hollywood celebrity.
A couple of hundred media members and onlookers greeted the Milwaukee Brewers' dog Hank Tuesday morning, before he was scheduled to greet fans at the Team Store at Miller Park.
Hank was expected to make a one hour visit starting at 7 a.m., for those buying T-shirts and other items that feature the "ballpark pup."
Fans were also asked to bring basic pet items like treats and litter to help local animal rescue groups. 20 percent of all proceeds from Tuesday's purchases is being donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Hank showed up as a stray at the Brewers' spring training camp in Arizona -- where he became an instant hit among players and fans. He'll stay with a team official's family in Milwaukee this year, when he's not making numerous appearances at Miller Park.
