Transcript for Hero Cat Throws First Pitch at Minor League Game
? We're going to head over to the social square because certainly you remember the cat who saved the little boy from the vicious dog attack, being pitched as a hero. Because she's a cat throwing the ceremonial first pitch. Without opposable thumbs? I don't know how she's going to do it. Paula Faris at the social square, with the play-by-play. Paula? Reporter: A round of apaws, get it, for this story? You remember the video that went viral last week. Tara the cat rushing in to take on a dog several times her size, and saving 4-year-old Jeremy from a dog attack. That has been viewed more than 21 million times on youtube. Well, as you mentioned, Tara and her human family were honored by the Bakersfield blaze last night. They're a minor league baseball game in California. We have 4-year-old Jeremy stepping up to the plate. This is where it gets interesting. Our research team, we're pretty sure that a cat has never attempted to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. It's going to take a couple of tries. And that ball is attached to a fishing line. But we're eventually going to have success on that. Poor Tara. And Tara taking to her own Twitter account. Saying meow. And we found out, she was a southpaw. Nice. We'll be right back.
