SAN ANTONIO (April 15, 2019) - An incident at a local baseball diamond gave new meaning to the term “farm team” when a stray pony was found this weekend tied up near the playing field. The jet black equine was found tied to a fence at the ball field in Rosedale Park Sunday afternoon. After a little convincing, the five year old stallion was brought into Animal Care Services where shelter staff is hoping his owners will come forward to claim him. No word what he was doing on the diamond but ACS staff have taken to calling him Slugger. Animal Care Services reminds residents all owned animals must remain on their owner’s property including livestock.


Media note: Slugger remains at ACS in the shelter livestock area and interviews/video are available this afternoon.
