The Charlotte Knights hosted it's first-ever "Animal Day" for the new location at BB&T Ballpark on Sunday.

Dogs were welcomed free of charge, the Humane Society of York County was present to offer adoptions and hall of fame wrestling legend George "The Animal" Steele was in attendance to sign autographs and throw out the first pitch.

Steele took a bite out of the baseball that he threw for the opening pitch. It wasn't a dog bone, but he said that it tasted "salty." 

"There's a lot of fans who have dogs, especially in this area, walking them around the ballpark during the day," Charlotte Knights communications director Tommy Viola said. "And it looks like today people brought them with them."

Attendance at BB&T Ballpark was 9,410.

"First of all the park is awesome," fan Rachel Beaver said. "(My dog) Rizzo loves seeing people and so it's a good experience to bring him out here."
