Do you remember that hero cat who saved that little boy when he was attacked by a dog? Well, that cat, named Tara, was honored at a Bakersfield Blaze minor league baseball game by throwing out the first pitch.

It wasn't a very good pitch, but what you expect from a cat...Maybe they should've had her throw out a ball of yarn instead.
