Hero cat to "throw" out first pitch at baseball game

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Tara the hero cat's 15 minutes of fame will stretch until at least next week.

Tara will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Bakersfield Blaze minor league baseball game May 20. Of course, she'll have some help from her family.

The cat saved her young owner Jeremy after a dog bit his leg and started dragging him. The video has more than seven and a half million views on YouTube.
