Agnes McKee, 105, of Oceanside, California threw out the first pitch on a game last Sunday between the San Diego Padres and the New York Mets. She says that "It is such an honor," but it's far from the greatest adventure that she's had. McKee grew up on a farm in Indiana. She and her late husband traveled to every state in the union and more than 30 countries.

She's still very active. Although McKee lives in an assisted living facility now, she does ballroom dancing every week and plays Wii bowling. She walks a mile every day and hopes to wean herself off her walker.

McKee has spent months practicing, training her pitching arm for this event. As you can see, she did pretty well. The Washington Post notes that she did better than many younger, more physically fit celebrities, such as Olympian Carl Lewis.
