Batkid throws out first pitch at Giants home opener

by  in Comic News Comment

Already off to a 5-2 start, the San Francisco Giants received an extra boost at their home opener Tuesday afternoon: SF’s own Batkid threw out the first pitch.


Batkid — secret identity, Miles Scott — skipped the Muni and arrived at AT&T Park in proper fashion:


Scott’s legacy as “Batkid” began last November, when the 5-year-old got to become a superhero for a day courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, engaging in various heroic quests around San Francisco Gotham City. Scott, whose cancer is currently in remission, received widespread media coverage for his day of adventure, and kudos from no less of an authority than President Barack Obama.
