The world's littlest superhero, Batkid, made a grand entrance at the Giants' home opener game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Miles Scott, the five-year-old behind the mask, rode through a cloud of smoke in a Lamborghini to the field where he made the ceremonial first pitch.

On Nov. 15, 2013, Scott, who has undergone treatment for leukemia, made headlines when he fought villains and rescued a damsel in distress as part of the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation in San Francisco.
