Woman, 105, Takes Pitching Mound for San Diego Padres

iStock/Thinkstock(SAN DIEGO) -- A California woman celebrated her 105th birthday by throwing out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game.

Agnes McKee, who is originally from Indiana, used a walker to get onto the field at Petco Park Sunday and tossed a ball underhand to open the game against the New York Mets-- a move she practiced with friends at her San Diego retirement home, she told South Bend's ABC station.

It didn't quite reach the plate, but it got her a jersey with her name and the number 105 on it.

"My main thing is to enjoy every day as it comes along," she told ABC57. "I enjoy life, I'm a happy person."

The Padres won the game 2-1.

McKee admitted to another ABC affiliate, KGTV in San Diego, that she doesn't have any tips for growing old.

"Everybody asks me that and I have no secrets," she said. "I have no idea how I got to be 105 years."

An employee at her retirement home said McKee is "overwhelmed" by all the media attention and spent part of today playing Wii Bowling -- trying to score a 300.
