Maude Newkirk the longtime baseball fan who has made headlines by throwing out the first pitch at Roger Dean Stadium last year prior to a spring training game between the St Louis Cardinals and Florida Marlins has died at Age 107. Newkirk was a regular on the mound in Florida throwing out first pitches between her 100th to 106th birthdays. She passed on Monday at the Manors Of Hobe Sound nursing home in Florida. In the story, Roger Dean Stadium general manager Mike Bauer pays his respects to Newkirk and you can see pictures of some of her recent first pitches.
