WATCH: 105-year-old lady throws out first pitch

  • David Whitlock

Born in 1909 and still bringing it.  Check out lifetime San Diego Padres fan, 105-year-old Agnes McKee give the windup and throw it (somewhat) for a ceremonial first pitch (via MLB.com).

 

I say “lifetime fan” but  her Padres have only been around for 45 or so years of her life.  The lady had to wait a good 60 years before her city even got a team!  Note she’s got four years on 101-year-old Canadian Kitty Cohen who through out the first pitch in Toronto on Mothers Day.

Her pitching style might have rubbed off on Cuban Padres right hand pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne who promptly followed Ms. McKee’s first pitch with seven and two-thirds innings of no-hit ball before losing it in the eighth.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
