Dun nun nun nun dun nun nun nu, BATKID! Yay Batkid is back and yesterday he threw out the first pitch for the San Francisco Giants home opener. There were no reports of any crime in the game, so Batkid rode out onto the field in the bat mobile and raised his tiny, mighty fist into the air and made baseball safe for everyone.
The San Francisco Giants tweeted this vine from their account yesterday so I will just let your cold, black heart grow ten sizes too big right now:
Miles Scott (AKA Batkid) was greeted by a roaring audience and pitcher Matt Cain, who held the young cancer survivor’s hand and walked him to the mound before playing their game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Decked in full Batgear, the 5-year-old, who had been battling leukemia since before he was two (it is now in remission), took the pitcher’s mound and hurled the first pitch with superhero force.
I’m at the point now where I don’t think we even need another Batman movie considering Nolan and Bale are done with it. I could happily go to a theater and pay my nine dollar ticket price just to watch Batkid do stuff all around town or clean up his toys or eat a burger or something. he is far too adorable and does the most important job any superhero can do, give a nation hope that all is right with the world and that there is goodness everywhere.
