On Saturday, Evelyn Jones will celebrate her 108th birthday. 

To mark the occasion, she’ll take the mound at Safeco Field (or at least stand in front of it like most people do) and throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Seattle Mariners take on the Los Angeles Angels. 

According to Bob Dutton of the News Tribune, Jones will become the oldest person on record to toss out a ceremonial first pitch before an MLB game. The current record belongs to Agnes McKee, who threw a pitch in San Diego last season.

Good luck, Evelyn!
