Daytonian of the Week: Heater
By Amelia Robinson
You know what they say about dragons with size 27 shoes? They are awesome.
Dayton has one of the most awesome dragons in all of dragon-kind.
Heater, the Dayton Dragons' 7-foot, 2-inches tall fun ambassador, has become one of the community's most beloved residents.
He gives out hugs, dances like a maniac and drums up smiles before, during and after Dragons games.
Heater, his sister Gem and The Green Team are part of the reason Dayton Dragons games are so entertaining.
We caught up with this hot dog-loving "drag-ster" fiend and knighted him Daytonian of the Week.
