Woman wants to see Tigers for her 104th

UPI News Service, 05/16/2011 

A Detroit woman whose plan to attend a Tigers game for her 104th birthday was foiled by rain said she is planning a second attempt.

Mary Johnson, a longtime Tigers fan who has yet to see her beloved team play at Comerica Park, said the team provided her with a suite to watch Sunday's game in celebration of her Tuesday birthday, but the game was postponed by rain, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

"We'll wait 'til another day," she said.

Johnson's caretaker, Steve Eick, 54, hosted an alternative birthday party at his home when the game failed to materialize. Eick, who also celebrated his own birthday Sunday, said he will work on a new plan to ensure Johnson gets to see the Tigers play in person.

Johnson, who outlived five brothers and four sisters, said she believes she has lived this long due to "the good Lord keeping me here for something."
