100-year-old man celebrates his birthday at Rangers game with fashionable sash

On the night that fans celebrated Josh Hamilton's return to Arlington, there was another fan celebrating something fairly remarkable: a 100th birthday. 

Joined by 24 family members, Jose Ortega, who has been attending games since 1972, was at the park to ring in reaching triple digits. And he did it while wearing a pretty jaunty sash, too. 


Which is gonna look pretty sharp when he goes dancing after the game, too. May all of us be blessed with the good genes and good luck to celebrate our 100th at the ballpark, too.
