You may not recall the name Miles Scott, but you’ll certainly recall ‘Batkid’ – the pint-sized five-year-old hero who helped ‘save’ San Francisco last November.
The young Scott, thanks to the city of San Francisco and the Make-A-Wish Foundation had his obsession turned into a reality as he alongside Batman helped fight crime all over the city that faithful Fall day.
The San Francisco Giants were also involved in Scott’s crime fighting spree and wanted to pay tribute to the Tulelake native by bringing him back to the ballpark where he threw out the first pitch during the San Francisco Giants home opener on Tuesday afternoon.
Scott arrived in the famed Batmobile with Batman at his side where the five-year-old, upon exiting the car, raised his arm to the crowd who erupted in applause.
Moments later, Giants pitcher Matt Cain escorted Scott to the mound where Batkid, glove and all, dribbled the first pitch to Cain as the crowd chanted ‘Batkid’ in the background.
Epically awesome moment.
