WATCH: 108-Year-Old Woman Throws First Pitch at Mariners Game
A Washington woman has become the oldest person to ever throw the first pitch at a Major League Baseball game.
Evelyn Jones, of Woodinville, Wash., marked her 108th birthday on Saturday by throwing the ceremonial first pitch at the Seattle Mariners game against the Los Angeles Angels.
Saturday was also the 101st anniversary of Babe Ruth’s first major league pitch.
Jones never misses a Mariners game, according to her daughter. She didn’t name a favorite player, instead telling ESPN, “I like them all.”
The 108-year-old woman walked three miles per day until she was 96 years old – except on Sundays, as not to miss football.
Jones also had some advice for living a long life.
“Keep having birthdays,” she said.
