105 year-old to throw out the first pitch

New, comment

This is good stuff.

She may be nearly 105, but that won't stop a great-great-great-grandmother from throwing out the first pitch for a Marlins spring training game next month.

Maude Newkirk, who turns 105 next week, will throw out a pitch at Roger Dean Stadium for the sixth straight year April 2.

Sorry about the change in fonts, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make it work.  Oh Well.

Anyway, it is good to know that if live to be 105, which isn't likely, I too can throw the first pitch out at a Marlins game.
