As promised, Tara the Hero Cat threw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game yesterday. Well, "threw" is generous. More like Tara—a true southpaw—sort of swatted at the ball, which was on some sort of retractable string, three times before her owner, Roger Triantafilo, gave up and discreetly side-armed another ball to the catcher.

And, of course, Tara now has her own Twitter account.
