SAN FRANCISCO -- Miles Scott became a national sensation in November when he took a thrilling ride through the city of San Francisco as Batkid. On Tuesday, Scott returned to AT&T Park for the first time since saving Lou Seal, this time to throw out the first pitch before the Giants home opener.
The ceremony started with a flashy entrance. As players warmed up on the field, smoke started filling the corridor behind the left field wall. The door opened and Batkid came through in the same custom Lamborghini that whisked him about town last year for an elaborate Make-A-Wish project.
Matt Cain, who donated $50,000 to Make-A-Wish last year, took Scott's hand and led him to the mound, where he added a glove to his Batkid costume and threw the first pitch before the Giants faced the Arizona Diamondbacks.
After the 7-3 win, Cain gave Scott, a cancer survivor, a tour of the home clubhouse at AT&T Park.
