Last night, heroic Tara the cat tossed out the first pitch at a baseball game in Bakersfield. How, you might ask? Well, see for yourself!


She rose to fame after saving a toddler from a dog attack, and now she can claim that she saved a Bakersfield Blaze minor league game from lacking any suspense. We wondered how the brave cat would actually throw the ball, and all it took was a little string and help from her family.

See Tara take the pitcher's mound in these pictures and click to watch the cat's video of her big moment, below.

To all the comments about the mother, We know a surveillance camera filmed the attack and so no person was there to help the boy. It seems that the mother checked on her son and saw he was able to walk (which he was) and then went after the dog. It appears that the dog was not wearing a collar so it might have been a stray. Anyway, kudos to Tara! You're great!
