Jake The Diamond Dog Is Wowing Baseball Fans With His Water Boy Skills
Jake the Diamond Dog, also known as "the best darn dog in professional baseball," delivers water to umpires during a minor league baseball game.
He's a very well trained dog with amazing water boy skills! He carries a basket of water out onto the baseball field in between innings and makes sure every umpire stays hydrated throughout the game. You can see him doing a great job at keeping the umps hydrated at Monday night's game between minor league teams the Fort Wayne TinCaps (the Padres' Class A affiliate) and the South Bend Cubs.
For the past few years now, Jake has entertained the masses at Minor League ballparks around the country. His full-game performance includes: delivering the game ball to the pitcher, shagging foul balls, taking water and towels to the umps, playing batboy, catching Frisbees and honoring the Sweetheart of the Game.

He is a prime example of man's best friend! What a good boy!

In a sun-filled church in Stamford, Connecticut, a small group of young students sit with their musical instruments. Among them are many instruments you'd expect to see in a classroom—like violins and guitars—and also several that you may have never seen before, like the South American Charango and a Caribbean steel drum. That would give you your first hint that you're not looking at a standard music class. This is an INTEMPO class.

AJ Muss is just 23 years old, but his has been an eventful life so far. As an alpine snowboarder, AJ qualified for this year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, competing for Team USA— but that's not the only reason we love his story. We've already seen a number of new young American stars be made on the mountain during these Olympic Games, including fellow snowboarders and gold medalists Chloe Kim and Red Gerard. When AJ competes in the Men's Parallel Giant Slalom beginning later this week, we hope to see him shine as brightly as his teammates have so far.
