Grandmother to throw out first pitch: No word on HGH or Prune Juice Testing


The Florida Marlins are really going out on a limb to try to impress their fans…(all 3 of them). Lets gets a closer look at this story from the AP and the Palm Beach Post…

“She may be nearly 105, but that won’t stop this 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 on April 2. Newkirk, who lives with her granddaughter, credits her longevity to her faith in God. Her family made her stop driving at 90-years-old, but she still loves watching baseball and going to church.”

Wow, 105 years old and still going strong, now that is impressive. With the way Hank goes about his business, he’ll only reach 105 if he clones himself, and we all know that has got to be the master plan. For Mrs. Newkirk, I hope that she throws from the moud, cause no matter the age, you gotta throw from the mound! and throws it right down middle, If anything it wont be as bad as this from last season….JUST A BIT OUTSIDE…You Watch.
