First, Tara the Hero Cat saved its young human from a dog. Now Tara is emerging into the limelight as a feline celebrity. She's been pegged to throw the first pitch at a Bakersfield, CA minor league baseball game.
No word yet on how a cat throws a baseball, but the Bakersfield Blaze are happy to capitalize on the Internet buzz surrounding the fearless feline.
For those out of the loop, 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was outside playing when a neighbor's dog was inadvertently let loose. The dog bit Triantafilo in the leg and threw the child to the ground. Tara lunged out and engaged the dog, chasing it away. Tara's heroics gave Jeremy's mother enough time to grab the child and pull him away.
