Batkid throws out first pitch at Giants game

BatKid Throws Out First Pitch

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Batkid stole hearts in San Francisco once more, with thousands cheering the young boy at the ballpark for the Giants home opener.

Miles Scott, who has undergone treatment for leukemia and saved the city as his favorite superhero through Make-A-Wish Foundation in November, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Diamondbacks-Giants game Tuesday.

He helped steer the Batmobile into the stadium and raised his right hand into the air out the window, walked hand in hand to the mound with pitcher Matt Cain and even received a fist bump from left fielder Michael Morse from across the dugout rail.

His form wasn't bad, either. The boy kicked his right leg back and fired an on-target fastball to Cain as thousands in the sellout crowd of 42,166 roared.

Looks like society cant get enough " feel good " stories . So I wonder when society starts to act right each day instead of the once in a while times ?

I hope all turns out well for this little boy. By the same token, there are so many children battling Leukemia ( and other cancers ), how about giving ANOTHER child the chance to be "Bat Kid" ??
