A California woman celebrated her 105th birthday by throwing out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game.

Agnes McKee, who is originally from Indiana, used a walker to get onto the field at Petco Park Sunday and tossed a ball underhand to open the game against the New York Mets -- a move she practiced with friends at her San Diego retirement home, she told South Bend's ABC station.

It didn't quite reach the plate, but it got her a jersey with her name and the number 105 on it.

'My main thing is to enjoy every day as it comes along,' she told ABC57. 'I enjoy life, I'm a happy person.'

The Padres won the game 2-1.

McKee admitted to another ABC affiliate, KGTV in San Diego, that she doesn't have any tips for growing old.

'Everybody asks me that and I have no secrets,' she said. 'I have no idea how I got to be 105 years.'

An employee at her retirement home said McKee is 'overwhelmed' by all the media attention and spent part of today playing Wii Bowling -- trying to score a 300.
