99-Year-Old Carnegie Woman Attends First Pirates Game At PNC Park

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- She waited 99 years to do it, but a woman from Carnegie finally attended her first Pittsburgh Pirates game.

Catherine Kyle is a huge Pirates fan, though she had never been to PNC Park to watch a game.

On Saturday, her family took her to the Pirates' home game against the Cincinnati Reds for her 99th birthday.

Catherine said she's been a lifetime fan.

"What I want to do is hear them sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in the seventh inning," Kyle said.

"This was a collective effort between many of her grandkids and great-grandkids, and I just feel lucky to be a part of it," Erin Kozy said. "But they really made this come together. It was a lot of moving parts."
