105-Year-Old Padres Fan Agnes McKee Throws Out 1st Pitch

One hundred-five-year-old Agnes McKee threw out the ceremonial first pitch in the San Diego Padres' game against the New York Mets on July 20.


105-year-old San Diego Padres fan Agnes McKee threw out the first pitch before the game against the New York Mets on July 20. 

MLB.com's Corey Brock and Will Laws say McKee was given the honors after her retirement home scheduled and excursion to Petco Park

"Agnes McKee didn't spend a whole lot of time worrying about how well her ceremonial first pitch would be received on Sunday at Petco Park. 

"'All pitchers have trouble with control,' McKee said, smiling. 

"McKee is four days past her 105th birthday, so the direction of her toss wasn't going to make or break her afternoon in the sun, a day that was to also include a hot dog and even a craft beer. 

"But first, about that pitch...

"McKee used a walker to get to the area between the mound and the plate. Catcher Rene Rivera stood in front of the plate as McKee prepared herself. She wound up her right arm as the crowd howled before delivering an underhanded toss in Rivera's direction. 

"This, McKee agreed, was far better than what she would have normally been doing on a Sunday at the Fairwinds-Ivey Ranch Retirement Community in Oceanside, Calif., where she's lived the past 12 years.

"How did this happen? How did McKee become the oldest person to throw out a first pitch at a Padres game?

"A group from her retirement home was planning an excursion to the game. Staff member Sheila Alston called the Padres to ask if they had interest in having McKee, who celebrated a birthday on Wednesday, throw out the first pitch. 

"'From there, it just exploded,' said Jane McKee, Agnes' daughter, who lives in Fallbrook. 

"There was a natural tie-in for McKee with the Padres' longstanding military initiative. Their Sunday first pitches are usually reserved for honoring the military. McKee's late husband, Harry, fought in the Navy in World War II. Harry McKee died in 2008, just shy of his 99th birthday. 

"McKee said she wasn't anticipating any nerves about throwing out the first pitch. She had practiced at her retirement home -- both overhand and underhand throws. She didn't really understand what all of the fuss was about. 

"'I don't feel nervous I guess because these (questions) have been going on for two weeks,' she said. 'I didn't realize what I was getting into.

"'It's an exciting time. I'm proud to be able to do it.'" 

McKee said she has no special secret for living as long as she has, per San Diego's ABC 10 News

"An Oceanside woman has become the oldest person to toss the ceremonial first pitch at a Padres game. 

"Agnes McKee is 105 years old. In honor of her birthday, which was last Wednesday, McKee was chosen to throw the first pitch before the Padres played the Mets. 

"'It's very exciting,' she said before heading onto the field. 'I'm very honored to be allowed to do that. I have no idea what's going to happen. I hope everything goes well.'

"Fans cheered as she tossed the ball. She wore a special jersey with her last name and number 105. 

"When asked what her secret to a long life is, she replied,'Everybody asks me that and I have no secrets. I have no idea how I attained or got to be 105 years.'

"She later said it may have something to do with genes from her mother's side of the family." 

The Padres (43-55) beat the Mets (46-52) , 2-1.
