Ask Barbara Casados to sew a button on a shirt for you and she'll say no.

Ask her to make a sick child feel better, though, and she'll sew up a storm.

She is the Bay Area's Caped Crusader. Casados was featured on the NBC Bay Area series Bay Area Proud.

She is the founder of "Kiss the Toad Creations" which is a non-profit organization whose main goal is to make children, who are battling life-threatening illnesses or disabilities smile.

Since 2008, Casados has sewn more than 11,000 super hero capes to send to those children.

Her efforts were recognized by the Giants Friday night.

She threw out the first pitch at the San Francisco Giants game against the Colorado Rockies.

Casados hammed it up to say the least as she took the mound. You can see the raw video at the top of this article. In the end, she threw a respectable lob to Giants closer Sergio Romo.

Below is reporter Garvin Thomas' report on Casados' sewing efforts.
