WWII Veteran Makes His Pitch For Immortality At MLB Game

Thank you for your service, Burke Waldron. Now give us the secret to being you.

Nice arm, sailor. World War II veteran Burke Waldron threw the ceremonial first pitch at the Seattle Mariners game on Memorial Day and nailed it.

The 92-year-old must've had a drink from the Fountain of Youth before his appearance. Watch him run to the mound and fire that ball.

"Greatest generation for sure," one reader commented at Barstoolsports.com.

Waldron began his service in 1943 and was stationed in Pearl Harbor, according to the Mariners. He retired from the Navy in 1946.

Maybe they really don't make 'em like this anymore.
