The San Francisco 49ers head coach was well aware of the Bay Area coming together to support the wish of a young boy in remission from leukemia.
San Francisco has been transformed into Gotham City for Miles, 5, to save the day thanks to the efforts of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Miles’ passion for comic books has become a real-life event where thousands of San Franciscans have lined the streets to watch Miles, better known as Batkid, join forces with Batman.
Jim Harbaugh commented on the touching story in his Friday press conference.
“It’s wonderful, wonderful,” the 49ers coach said five minutes into his podium visit. “It’s great for the youngster and it’s great for the city of San Francisco and the whole region.”
Miles’ story has captivated the nation as he saves Gotham City from the likes of villians, the Penguin and the Riddler. He also has saved a damsel in distress, and Lou Seal, the mascot of the San Francisco Giants.
Count Harbaugh in with the bunch of those applauding Miles' heroics.
“I’m excited to read about it,” Harbaugh said. “Saving lives for the day, I love it. It’s so good.
“A good deed in a weary world.”
#SFBatKid is my hero!!! Saving the city today!—
