Hero Cat 'throws' out first pitch at Minor League Baseball game

Finally an answer to the question: How does a cat throw out a first pitch?

Tara the Hero Cat, who became an Internet icon after saving a California boy from a dog attack, threw out the first pitch at a Minor League Baseball game on Tuesday night.
The Bakersfield blaze attempted to have Tara, the Hero Cat, throw out the first pitch herself using a baseball attached to a fishing line. It did not work.

Ryan Triantafilo, the father of the 4-year-old Hero Cat saved, helped get the pitch to the plate.
