Tara the hero cat ‘throws out’ first pitch at baseball game

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Tara the hero cat, who came the rescue of the 4-year-old boy who was being attacked by a neighborhood dog, “threw out” the first pitch at the minor league Bakersfield Blaze baseball game Tuesday night.

The cat is owned by the Triantafilos family of Bakersfield and rocketed to international fame last week after video was released showing Tara chasing off a dog that was attacking the boy.
