Tara the superhero cat who saved its owner's young boy from a dog attack threw out the first pitch at the Bakersfield Blaze's minor league baseball game Tuesday night.

Of course, cats can't really throw baseballs because they don't have thumbs. And yes, that's the only reason cats can't throw baseballs.

But with a little help from its owner, Tara got the ball home. Good job Tara.
