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.


Hero Cat, who is of course on Twitter, gets the final word.
Here's the full video of Hero Cat's day at the ballpark.
