107-year-old woman attends her first baseball game at Nationals park

Friday May 27th, 2016

Virginia McLaurin is having her best year ever, which is extra impressive when you take into account she is 107 years old.

2016 has already seen McLaurin meet, and dance with, President Obama and the First Lady, and have a party with the Harlem Globetrotters.

Now the D.C. senior citizen is hanging out with the Nationals while attending her first ever baseball game and dancing on the field with manager Dusty Baker after being presented with a custom No. 107 jersey, according to The Washington Post.
