What better way to celebrate turning 105 than throwing the ceremonial first pitch at a San Diego Padres game?
On Sunday, Agnes McKee of Oceanside, California became the oldest person to ever toss the first pitch for the Padres. Wearing a jersey with her last name and "105" on the back, McKee drew cheers as she threw the ball as hard as she could (and put 50 Cent to shame). When asked by ABC 10 the secret to her longevity, she replied, "I have no secrets. I have no idea how I attained or got to be 105 years old." --Catherine Garcia
