Batkid is back! Pint-sized superhero kicks off the Giants' season

For their home openers, many MLB teams call on greats from the past to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The San Francisco Giants, however, beckoned their city's most beloved superhero.

Batkid, aka Miles Scott, a 5-year-old cancer survivor whose Make-A-Wish day turned S.F. into Gotham City, was needed at AT&T Park again Tuesday. He had already saved Giants mascot Lou Seal from Penguin, now Batkid needed to fire the first pitch of the 2014 home season for the Giants.
