Even though 99-year-old Catherine Kyle lives close to the city of Pittsburgh and is a huge Pirates fan, she had never been to their home stadium to watch them play a baseball game.
Well, that all changed when her family surprised Catherine for her 99th birthday by taking her to see her favorite team play the Cincinnati Reds.
And, it was quite a party. Calling themselves “Catherine’s Crew,” a total of 16 of Catherine’s children, grandchildren and great children went to the ballgame to see the Pirates beat the Reds.
Making the event more special was Francisco Cervelli, her favorite player, taking the time to visit with her in the stands and giving her an autographed baseball.
