Batkid Draws Cheers As He Throws The First Pitch At Giants-Diamondbacks Game

Good news, Batkid is back! Miles Scott, also known as "Batkid" threw the first pitch at AT&T Park before the Arizona Diamondbacks versus San Francisco Giants game on Tuesday.

The young boy made a superb entry into the stadium, steering the Batmobile and walked hand in hand to the mound with Giants’ pitcher Matt Cain. He also got a fist bump from left fielder Michael Morse.

Miles, whose leukemia is in remission, loves superheroes. He made headlines last year in November when non-profit Make-A-Wish Foundation turned San Francisco into Gotham City and the five-year-old into Batman.

Thousands of people – including President Barack Obama – came out to support the Batkid and cheer him on as he saved lives and damsels in distress.

Miles was miserably missed by his fans after his much-anticipated Academy Awards appearance in March this year was canceled due to rumored tension between the show's producers and "The Amazing Spider-Man" lead Andrew Garfield.

However, a few days after the controversy erupted and almost everyone started bashing Garfield online, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released an explanation:

"Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made that require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production."
