On Labor Day, everybody's favorite feline -- Internet meme sensation Grumpy Cat -- threw out the first pitch at the Arizona Diamondbacks game, as the D-Backs took on the San Francisco Giants. The Diamondbacks defeated the Giants 6-1, but the real winner was Grumpy Cat. The cat (real name: Tardar Sauce), who has feline dwarfism and an underbite that gives her a purrfect permafrown, is one of four cats in the home of the Valley-based Bundesen family. Grumpy Cat received her own Diamondbacks jersey, met and mingled with media and MLB Hall of Famer Tony La Russa, and vicariously tossed the first pitch from the mound. Here's a slideshow of Grumpy's big day at the game.
