A 108-year-old woman made history Saturday when she became the oldest person to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game.
Evelyn Jones threw out the pitch at the Seattle Mariners’ Safeco Field before a game against the Los Angeles Angels.
A team spokesperson said she watches every game in her room at her retirement community so that other residents won’t bother her, according to a local television station.
The previous record-holder was a 105-year-old woman who threw out the pitch at a San Diego Padres game last year, according to Sports Illustrated.
