Photo Fab: 107-Year-Old Woman Who Danced with POTUS Attended Her First MLB Game

If we live to see the age of 107, we hope we’re as happy and amazing as Virginia McLaurin. 

Not only has she danced with President and Mrs. Obama in the White House and hung out with the Harlem Globetrotters, now the South Carolina Native has attended her very first Major League Baseball game. 

Watch a 106-Year-Old Woman Fulfill Her Dream of Visiting The White House


McLaurin was invited to help the team celebrate Black Heritage Day at Nationals Park to honor the contributions of African-Americans to the game of baseball and the community.

After being presented with a custom Nationals jersey with her name and age on the back, McLaurin showed off some of her dance moves which proved to be a good luck charm for the team who went on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1. 

Meet Virginia!
