Rain Varela Staff Writer @Rain_VarelaAfter stealing a nation’s heart and saving San Francisco for a day, Batkid a.k.a Miles Scott is back at it. This time, instead of running around the city fighting crime, Batkid got to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the San Francisco Giant’s home opening game this past Tuesday, April 8; and to make it even better, Batman was there to assist him. Miles Scott is a 5 year old cancer survivor who, through Make-A-Wish Foundation, was granted his fondest desire to be a superhero for the day. In an organized event, the City of San Francisco, California was turned into Gotham and Miles, dressed as Batkid, went on to fight various crime scenarios. In what may be described as a true ‘superhero’ moment, Scott was actually able to fight off his cancer and is now on remission. Thus, Batkid is able will be able to venture out to continue to keep the world safe. Arriving in his own specially designed Batmobile at AT&T Park, Batkid walked onto the field to deafening cheers. After saluting the crowd, he was escorted to the pitcher’s mound by the Giants own pitcher Matt Caine where he got to throw the first pitch with no less than Batman assisting. Just a day’s work for the little super-hero!
