Catherine Kyle has been a Pittsburgh Pirates fan all her life and loves watching their baseball games on TV, but despite living in nearby Carnegie, Pennsylvania, she had never been to PNC Park to see them play. She has a birthday coming up and it’s a big one, so to celebrate her 99th birthday, her family surprised her with tickets to a game.
A total of 16 of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren took Catherine to see the Pirates play the Cincinnati Reds, and the Pirates won 14-0. She said she was looking forward to hearing them sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in the seventh inning and she sang along and had a blast.
“I feel special,” the birthday gal says. “It was a really good game and it was really fun.”
