Tara hero cat “throws” first pitch at California baseball game

Tara “Hero Cat” might want to stick to saving children. The ferocious feline was cool and confident as she was held on the pitcher’s mound to throw a ceremonial first pitch at a Bakersfield Blaze Minor League Baseball game Tuesday.

The Bakersfield, Calif. cat is known best for saving her owner, 4-year-old Jeremy, from a dog attack last week.

“Well, I gave it my best shot, but my humans really got in the way. Everyone knows I’m left pawed,” the cat’s owners noted on the kitty’s Facebook page.

Jeremy, however, has a decent little arm.
