102-year-old woman throws out first pitch at Brewers game

Monday June 1st, 2015

The Milwaukee Brewers had one of their oldest fans in attendance on Sunday, as 102-year-old Gladys Holbrook was invited by the team to take the field and throw out the first pitch.

Holbrook is a resident of Sheboygan, Wis., 57 years older than the team itself which began playing in Milwaukee in 1970., and the centenarian super fan told Fox 6 Now that she believes she could take over the manager's position this season.

Between Holbrook's debut on the mound, and the first tailgate for "Griller Park," Saturday will go down in the history books as a banner day for the Brewers franchise.

You can see a full gallery of Holbrook's big day at the Sheboygan Press website.
