CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19)- Ruth Watkins is not your average senior citizen.
At the age of 96, she rides on the back of motorcycles, and being a big Cincinnati Reds fan, she even plays a little baseball.
"I don't have a season pass or anything like that, but over the years I've been to many, many, many games," said Ruth.
Instead of just watching the Reds from the stands like she has for more than 70 years, Ruth went on a new adventure.
"Let's talk Crosley Field... I sent a picture in to the Reds, and they chose to have me come," she said.
She sent a picture of herself, Rosie the Red, Mildred Kincaid and Betty Clancy from the Twin Lakes Baseball Barbecue picnic last summer to the Reds. The Reds later called her to invite her to their May 8 game against the Braves to throw the first pitch.
On Wednesday, she did just that. It was an honor she says that made her quite popular.
