SAN FRANCISCO, CA - SAN FRANCISCO (KRON/CNN) - It wasn't a bird or a plane, but a special 5-year-old kid that wowed the crowd at a baseball game Tuesday.

Batkid threw out the first pitch between the San Francisco Giants opening game.

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.
