The city of San Francisco remains in safe hands.

Today, with the Giants celebrating their home opener, Batkid was back to ensure it all went according to plan.

The MLB team gave the young superhero the honor of throwing the first pitch at a packed out AT&T stadium several months after he roamed the city protecting it's citizens as part of one of the most elaborate and heartfelt Make-A-Wish events ever.

When he is not fighting crime Batkid goes by the name of Miles Scott - a five-year old kid who is bravely battling leukaemia - and he proved today that he is just as apt at throwing pitches in the big leagues as he is to catching bad guys.

He arrived Tuesday in a Batmobile, and proudly made his way to the mount after waving to the enthusiastic crowd ahead of the Giants game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

You can watch the video of the pitch here, and sit back in awe of Batkid - surely the world's youngest super hero.
