Grumpy Cat ‘throws’ out first pitch at D’Backs game

A highlight of many-a-baseball game is a celebrity throwing out the first pitch. The Arizona Diamondbacks officially raised the bar and may have broken the internet in doing so for today’s game against the San Francisco Giants.

Why? Well, the team had internet sensation Grumpy Cat “throw” out the first pitch, except they actually didn’t. You know, because she’s a cat with no opposable thumbs and thus can’t actually throw.

But it still looked like a fun day for all involved, even Grumpy Cat, who was stuffed into a pet-sized team jersey. Of course, the merry occasion was captured on Twitter.

So, does this mean that the latest incarnation of Air Bud will be joining the team as a ball boy soon?
