GOOD NEWS: Baseball-Loving Lady Celebrates Turning 85 With Base Hit

St. Jude Auction 2017

Billie Harris loves baseball, so when she turned 85 this week, she celebrated with her favorite sport. Harris was a member of the Arizona Ramblers softball team back in the day and threw an impressive 70 no-hitters in her competitive career. And she’s still got her skills, she hit a single at her birthday game.

"That's what I wanted to do," Harris says. "Because I used to run pretty good. [sic] To be 85 and to make it to first base, that's even better for me."

As for her next birthday, don’t expect another birthday baseball game for Billie. She says next year she’s “going to Bermuda ... to rest.”
