105 Year Old Woman To Throw Out First Pitch For Padres

The Padres are going for a record Sunday:

In honor of her milestone birthday, the San Diego Padres selected a spirited 105-year-old lady with a good sense of humor to throw out the first pitch Sunday before a game at Petco Park. . . . Born in 1909, she just missed the Cubs’ last World Series title in 1908.
. . .
Honored as she is, McKee didn’t spare the Padres with her harsh assessment of the franchise, saying, “I haven’t been very into the Padres because they don’t ever win any games.”

The record may be short-lived if the Braves have Julio Franco throw out the first pitch next week.
