Virginia McLaurin has lived an interesting and storied life. The 107-year-old was lucky enough to dance with President and Mrs. Obama at the White House as well as hang with the Harlem Globetrotters, and now she has seen her very first MLB game.
The native of South Carolina was invited to the game to celebrate Black Heritage Day at Nationals Park. This special day is to celebrate the contributions of African-Americans to the game of baseball as well as the community as a whole.
McLaurin must have been a good luck charm for the Washington Nationals team as they went on to win the day 2-1. Not only did she get to enjoy the winning game, she was also presented with her very own baseball jersey with both her name and her age printed on the back.
