105-year-old woman to throw first pitch at Padres game

This bit of news should prove to everyone that you are never too old to have a little bit of fun. 105-year-old Agnes McKee is set to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the San Diego Padres meeting with the New York Mets on July 20.

“I am very honored to do this, it’s exciting and I hope I can get through it,” said McKee, via FOX Sports San Diego. “I was really glad I got up this morning, I was afraid I wouldn’t.

McKee is one of the oldest residents in San Diego County and she will get the chance to enjoy a great moment in front of thousands of fans whenever she steps onto the mound for the first pitch Sunday.

For McKee, this is just the latest moment in a life that she has been living to the fullest.

“My main thing is to enjoy everyday as it comes along, don’t worry about things that haven’t happened yet,” said McKee.

McKee will toss out the first pitch underhanded, which is something that she has been working on “between bridge and bingo” games.

I hope that I can be this cool when I age.
