The newest member of the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball club will never slug a home run, but that doesn't stop him from being part of the team.
Stevie is a 6-month-old Shepherd mix who was recently adopted by Isotopes pitcher John Ely. The energetic puppy runs the bases, hangs out in the clubhouse and, yes, even pees on the baseball field. But what's so amazing about little Stevie — short for Stevie Wonder — is that he's blind.
KOB-TV reports that rescue workers found the dog wandering the streets, already partially blind and with infected eyes that had to be removed. During Stevie's recovery, a group of Isotopes players came to do some volunteer work at the same animal shelter and met the pup. For Ely, it was love at first sight.
"He's got a great sense of smell and great hearing," Ely told the station. "So he kind of sniffs his way around and now it seems like he walks around without any issues at all."
