100-year-old (Brooklyn) Dodgers fan throws out first pitch in Los Angeles

Dorothy Finerty is a soon-to-be 100-year-old Dodgers fan from Brooklyn, N.Y. 

As a child, "Dot" recalls sitting around the radio with her six half-siblings as their father listened to Dodger games with headphones and relayed the plays to the kids because the thing didn't have speakers.

Nearly a century later -- and 3,000 miles from New York -- Dot and the Dodgers were reunited when she threw out the first pitch before a marathon matinee with the Nationals on Wednesday.

Not bad for 100 years young. For what it's worth, Vin Scully joined the Dodgers broadcast team in 1950, which means Dot's got some experience on him. And for those of you keeping score at home, Dot is a mere 86 years older than the young lady who threw out Tuesday's first pitch ... Little League World Series phenom Mo'ne Davis.
