'We missed it last year because she had a heart attack' -- Octogenarians visit all 30 MLB parks

Gwen and Ardie, 81 and 86 respectively, at long last concluded their circumnavigation of Major League Baseball -- visiting all 30 ballparks -- on Tuesday.

The pair tried to visit Marlins Park last season but had to reschedule when Ardie had a heart attack. She's fine now, thankfully, and really enjoyed her time seeing the Marlins.

The two turned out to be good luck charms -- Giancarlo Stanton's two-run homer in the eighth led the Fish to victory over the visiting Brewers.
