108-year-old throws out first pitch

The ceremonial first pitch at a weekend MLB game was thrown by Evelyn Jones, who was celebrating her 108th birthday.

It happened in Seattle as the Mariners hosted the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.

According to the Mariners, she is the oldest person ever to throw out the first pitch for a major league game. After her short underhand toss to Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez, the crowd serenaded her by singing "Happy Birthday."

Jones never misses a Mariners game, according to her daughter. 

She walked three miles per day until she was 96 years old – except on Sundays, as not to miss football.

Jones also had some advice for living a long life.

“Keep having birthdays,” she said.
