Yankees Give 100-Year-Old Fan Huge Surprise

The Connecticut woman, who lives in an assistant living home, received four tickets to a game from her favorite team.

Caregivers at Village Green of Wallingford contacted the Yankees hoping for a signed ball for Rose Manlio's century celebration.

The team did something even better.

Manlio had no problem expressing her love for baseball.

"I love them, and I love them because they play baseball..."Jeter, A-Rod, they're all good," Manlio said. "I love them all!"

The last time Manlio saw the Yankees play was in the 1950's when Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris were on the field.
