It took 50 Cent several weeks to shake off the shame felt from his struggle first pitch at a MLB game and now a supreme senior citizen is putting him to shame with her inaugural effort.
Agnes McKee, a 105-year-old woman, recently celebrated her biggest birthday yet and the San Diego Padres invited her to throw out the first pitch to give her the gift of celebrity.
One hundred and five years ago, the Pirates defeated the Tigers in the World Series, Ty Cobb won the batting title with a .377 average (and led the league with nine home runs) and George Mullin won 29 games.
It’s also when Agnes McKee was born.
McKee, 105-years-young, was on hand as the Padres hosted the Mets on Sunday and she even threw out the ceremonial first pitch, opting for the throwback windmill windup.
She must have brought some good luck with her, too, because Odrisamer Despaigne dealt 7 and 2/3 no-hit innings and the Padres eventually walked off thanks to a Seth Smith single in the ninth.
Take a look at Mrs. McGee’s first pitch in the video above and continue on through the gallery to see how she prepared for it. Somebody in the G-G-G-Unit should take notes.
