GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) An upstate woman celebrated her 99th birthday in a major way.
Ruby Esuary Neighbors threw out the first pitch at the Greenville Drive baseball game Tuesday evening.
Several people from her family and friends gathered to witness it.
This is sure to be a birthday Neighbors won’t forget. FOX Carolina asked her what’s the secret to living a long life, she said, “I don’t know... just trust in the Lord, I guess.”
Her grandson jokingly asked someone who works for the Drive if it could happen, and it became reality.
Throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game cane be challenging, especially in front of hundreds of strangers. However, Ruby was ready for that challenge.
“She’s been practicing with her caregiver, throwing from the walker, and just getting prepared, said Michael Esuary, Neigjbors grandson.
