Batkid Returns to San Francisco to Throw the Giants' First Pitch

Everyone's favorite cancer-fighting superhero is back, and the pint-sized star is having more fun than ever. This time, 5-year-old Miles Scott got to swing by AT&T Park in San Francisco to throw out the first pitch for the Giants' opening home game.

Oh my gosh, can you imagine few things more magical for a little boy than to dress up like Batman, arrive at a Major League stadium in a stellar automobile, and then throw out the opening pitch? Because I'm guessing that Miles had the time of his life.

In case you've been living under a social media rock, Batkid is the pint-sized leukemia patient that the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco teamed up for last November to turn the City by the Bay into Gotham City.

The little guy (who is in remission, by the way) was supposed to appear at the Oscars with Andrew Garfield, aka Spider-Man, but their scene was dramatically cut.

I doubt Batkid was even thinking of the Academy Awards today though, since he was in baseball paradise. He showed up to the field in full Batkid regalia in a decorated Lamborghini. Then he got to meet Giants star Matt Cain, and then he threw out the opening pitch to be caught by Cain himself! It's this little boy's dream come true, I'm sure.

How wonderful that so many people have come together for Miles after he's been through so much. It's a testament to the human spirit that we really do enjoy lifting each other up. Hopefully this is an inspiration to many to help some of the countless families out there with very ill children. They all deserve the superhero treatment.
