BAKERSFIELD (KRON) — The most famous cat in America is about to make its pro baseball debut.
Tara, the cat seen on surveillance video saving a little boy from a biting dog, will throw out the first pitch May 20th at the Bakersfield Blaze minor league baseball game.
The team hasn’t said how exactly a cat is supposed to throw a baseball. Still, executives with the team see the opportunity to capitalize on one of the biggest viral sensations in recent memory.
The original video posted by the Triantafilo family has now reached nearly 10 Million views on YouTube.
