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.
