105-Year-Old With Indiana Ties Throws Out First Pitch


Agnes McKee celebrated her 105th birthday Sunday afternoon by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the San Diego Padres’ game against the New York Mets.

With a windmill wind up reminiscent of Hall of Famer Satchel Paige (who would be 108) the Hoosier native, who now lives in Oceanside, Calif., became the oldest person ever to throw a ceremonial pitch before a Major League Baseball game.

Her pitch took a few bounces before it was scooped up by Padres catcher Rene Rivera, but it was on line. That’s more than we can say for rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's ceremonial pitch before a Mets game earlier this season.
