Adorable "Batkid" Throws His First Major League Pitch

The city of San Francisco saw a very special superhero last fall. Batkid, also known as Miles Scott, is a five-year-old leukemia patient (now in remission!) who had his wish of being Batman for a day fulfilled through the Make-a-Wish foundation. We saw him rescue a damsel in distress and fight the villainous Riddler and Penguin in events that had overwhelming public support and participation. Well, his stint as Batman didn't end there. Scott recently suited up and had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the San Francisco Giants opening day baseball game.

Throwing out the inaugural pitch is a special event at any major league game. But, the first day of the season is an especially exciting one, and sees its fair share of celebrities who take the pitcher's mound.

This heartwarming video shows Batkid entering the field and throwing a ball towards home plate. Afterwards, the catcher for the Giants comes to congratulate him and snap a photo. The endearing sight is met with cheers from the crowd, and upon watching it, you can't help but smile along with this tiny Batman.
