Normally, I’d say there is no way that a cat could chuck a baseball 60 feet 6 inches–but this is not your normal, everyday cat we’re talking about here. This is Tara, the hero cat.

Viral sensation Tara, the cat that saved that little boy from a vicious dog attack, will be throwing out the first pitch next Tuesday, May 20th, at the Bakersfield Blaze game. We’re assuming that the cat will have a little bit of help from her family. Of course, it would be a much more interesting story if she didn’t.

Tara the cat became internet famous earlier this week when a video went viral showing four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo being attacked by a neighborhood dog, and Tara coming to the rescue with a rather impressive spear tackle. The video, posted by Jeremy’s father Roger, currently boasts over ten million views.

Ridiculous? Of course it is. But it’s for a good cause. Fans that bring animal food and used toys will receive half-price admission, and the food and toys will all be donated to local animals charities.
