World War 2 Two Vet, 92, Throws Out Blazing First Pitch
If the Seattle Mariners are looking for some help in the bullpen, they may want to give this guy a call.
United States Navy 2nd Class Petty Officer Burke Waldron, 92, threw out the first pitch before the Mariners game against the San Diego Padres on Memorial Day. He's got a spring in his step as he takes the mouth. The southpaw then delivers a solid offering. Sure, it's cute, but it's also impressive. Very impressive. Look at the mustard Waldron puts on that pitch. Not too shabby, right?
Waldron may have inspired the hometown Mariners -- they cruised to an easy 9-3 victory.
It's just more proof that having a veteran presence can be a boost to a team.
