Batkid takes to the pitcher’s mound, melts hearts once more

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO - It wasn't a bird or a plane but a special five-year-old kid that wowed the crowd at a baseball game Tuesday.

Batkid threw out the first pitch between the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks.

The boy, whose real name is Miles Scott, has leukemia but it's in remission.  He dressed up as his favorite superhero during a Make-A-Wish Foundation event late last year and has become a loved figure as his alter-ego.

Perhaps Batkid gave the home team a little boost.  The Giants won 7-3.
