Hank flew with his parents from New Orleans to Sacramento.
"We made the account because her family lives in West Virginia," Hank's dad, Will Glass said. "We live in New Orleans and we just wanted them to see him grow up because we don't want to visit them as much we want to. We just started the account and we were being stupid I was like this is my best friend hank doing this."
Hank had a big day in Sacramento and was a little grumpy before tip off so he went to take a nap.
When it was time for his big debut, he was a star in his green stroller.
"I'm obsessed with Hank," Hank's mom, Ashley Glass said. "People will come up to me and say I'm obsessed with your pig and I'm like me too!"
