World War II veteran celebrates 100th birthday with a foul ball at Red Sox game

New, comment

World War II veteran Ben Sofka celebrated his 100th birthday on Tuesday at Fenway Park and he ended up walking away with a very cool birthday present.

Not a lot of people get to celebrate a 100th birthday, but a very tiny fraction of that already small number can say they celebrated by receiving a foul ball at a MLB game. That's a once-in-a-decade moment and a very wonderful gesture by the ball girl to make sure Ben came away with a souvenir.
