Look out, villains: Batkid is back, and he’s going to strike you out!

The world’s smallest super hero was spotted Tuesday at the San Francisco Giants’ home opener and threw the first pitch. The 5-year old kindergarten student, whose real name is Miles Scott, is in remission from leukemia. He captured the country’s imagination last year when San Francisco and the Make-A-Wish Foundation threw him a daylong adventure, where he got the chance to live out his super hero dreams.

Fans cheered as he ascended the mound and threw the ball to Giants’ pitcher Matt Cain.
