Agnes McKee: The oldest person to throw the first pitch at a baseball game

Posted July 22nd, 2014 @ 4:45am

Let's hear it for Agnes McKee! The 105-year-old California resident was asked to throw out the first pitch at the San Diego Padres game over the weekend, making her the oldest person to ever throw out a major league pitch.

Agnes isn't much of a baseball fan herself, but she did it in loving memory of her baseball-loving and playing late husband.

When it comes to Ms. Mckee's leisure time, she prefers to spend it focused on art, bridge games, dancing, and martinis.
