VIDEO: Chicago Cubs Fan Throws Out The First Pitch At A Spring Training Game On Her 100th Birthday


In 1928, 12-year-old Kate Harris was quarantined with scarlet fever. Not being able to leave the house, she began listening to the Chicago Cubs on the radio to pass the time and she’s been hooked ever since.

The North Side native turned 100 last week and to help Harris celebrate the milestone, the Cubs invited her to Sloan Park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before their spring training game against the Diamondbacks. Check out this amazing story.
