Batkid appears at Giants home opener to throw out first pitch

One of the feel good stories from the offseason was that of Batkid. If you’re not familiar with the story of 5-year-old Miles Scott, aka Batkid, he is currently in remission from leukemia. The folks from the Make-A-Wish Foundation turned an comic book hero obsession – more specifically, Batman – into a major event. And deservedly so. For one day last November, San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City.

His story so touched many a heart that Stephen Amell, star of The CW’s Arrow, even had members of the cast make a video and Amell posted it on his Facebook page. (A recommended watch!)

Well, Batkid returned to AT&T Park yesterday (one of those he rescued during his day was Lou Seal) to throw the ceremonial first pitch for the Giants home opener.

I know it was a big deal for Seahawks fans to watchRussell Wilson to toss out the first pitch for the Mariners home opener (not so much for Dan). While I’m also a big Seahawks fan, I got to say that I enjoyed watching this even more.
