Her popularity has grown immensely over the years, as she has her own statue in front of the ballpark, her own souvenir items, and her own annual baseball card. She greets fans after every Friday and Saturday 'Hoppers game along with her brother, Master Yogi Berra, and her niece, Miss Lou Lou Gehrig.
After her final Grasshoppers game on September 2, 2015, her ball bucket was donated to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY.
When he's not on-field chasing baseballs or begging to play fetch, Master Yogi Berra can be found greeting visitors in the Hoppers front office.

He proudly holds the distinction of being the first dog to get tossed from a professional baseball game after he was ejected in 2009 for "relieving" himself on the field.
Yogi is sponsored by After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic and Guilford College Animal Hospital, the longest standing after hours emergency veterinary clinic in Greensboro.
Miss Lou Lou Gehrig is perfecting her bat-fetching skills by learning from her aunt, Miss Babe Ruth. When she is not fetching bats or roaming around the office, she can usually be seen in the kitchen trying to taste human food.
