MILWAUKEE – Most baseball players try to avoid being in the doghouse, but one member of the Milwaukee Brewers family will be feeling right at home.

Hank, the team’s newest mascot, will have a new home at Miller Park, the team has announced. The “Hank House” is set to debut during Monday night’s game against the San Diego Padres.

Described as a "roomy, one-bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling," the house will be positioned in the center field stands for its first game. It is mobile and will be moved around the stadium as the season goes on.

When Hank is at Miller Park, the house will be used for photo opportunities and appearances.

Hank was adopted by the team after he showed up as a stray at the Brewers' spring training facility in Phoenix in February. Hank's full-time home is with the family of Marti Wronski, the team's vice president and general counsel. Wronski is a Neenah native and graduate of St. Norbert College.
