Tara, the hero cat who fought off a dog that was attacking a four-year old boy, has now been invited by the Bakersfield Blaze minor league team to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the ball game. Tara has reportedly accepted the offer, although it’s unclear how she will throw a baseball from the pitcher’s mound to home plate.
