The Rays debuted a new player, Super Dog Max, on Thursday as part of a team promotion that allowed fans to bring their canine friends to the ballpark.

You have definitely seen a dog in a uniform before, but you likely never have seen one that acts so much like a human.

The announcers even wonder out loud if the dog might actually be a person in a suit. And honestly, after watching Max sit in the dugout, I think they could be on to something.
