Minor league promotions reached an all-time low on Tuesday when Tara "The Hero Cat" was pegged to throw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game. 


Cats don't have thumbs (or the ability to throw a baseball) so this will instantly go down as one of the worst first pitches in the history of the sport. They rigged up some sort of string contraption that was supposed to allow Tara to simply nudge the ball and have it sail towards home plate.

Fail.

The cat's owner (Roger Triantafilo) had to step in and do some sort of kitty throw that was almost as bad as the first couple of attempts.

Here is the full video:


Look, what the cat did by saving the little kid from the attacking dog was pretty cool...just keep him off the baseball field.

But I'm a dog guy...so perhaps I'm biased.
