Lucille Fleming has a mean arm on her and she proved it at the Aug. 26 Rangers game.

The 103-year-old got to throw out the first pitch for the game, making one of her dreams come true.

She described the event as "heavenly" and said she recently survived a harrowing trip to the hospital in hopes that she could see her Rangers play.

Just look at that curve.





The Rangers should have kept Fleming on the mound because they didn't have too much luck against the Toronto Blue Jays that game. Fleming's favorite team lost 12-4.

Way to root for your home team, Lucille.

This year’s World Series has been a pretty big one for Cubs fans. It probably has something to do with the fact that their team is in it for the first time since 1945. But for one fan, things got even better. How much better? How about "Bill Murray giving you a free ticket and hanging out with you all night" better?

Ok. Yeah, that’s pretty good.

Adding to his list of weird affectations, which includes just showing up at karaoke parties and kickball games, Mr. Murray got one lucky Cubs fan into Game 6, last night, and he even offered her nachos and stuff. It's like he's in a competing against himself to be the world's best person, and he's destroying the competition. 

Karen Michel, the diehard Cubs fan without a ticket, tells her story to People:

“I thought some people holding tickets might not show up or something, I figured I’d give it a shot but I wasn’t expecting much. It was crazy, Bill walked right by me, grabbed me and gave me a ticket! I said, ‘Where are we going?’ and he said, ‘You can come sit with me!’”

It’s all just so heartwarming, isn't? The two sat behind home plate together, watched the Cubs win, and got better seats than Al Roker. Al. Roker. It doesn’t get better than that, does it?

Michel says that the two "hit it off" and might even go to the opening of Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, next year. If the pair shows up at the Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, you can bet, we’ll cover it.

For those not in the know, former MMA star Genki Sudo and his dance troupe/band/art project/human robots have been doing their thing as WORLD ORDER. Every one of their performances is cooler and weirder than what you just saw. Like this!

Is it just me or is the first pitch of baseball games way more entertaining than the actual game?
