    Phil Coyne retired after 81 years as an usher for the Pittsburgh Pirates at age 99. Here's the story:

    I got to spend a little time with Phil at four Pirates games at PNC Park. Jovial and full of great stories, he'll be missed by all the fans.

    Amazing. Some have those genes, just keep right on going until "early retirement." May he enjoy future season from the stands or on TV. To most, 99 sounds really old, unless (I guess) you're 99, in which case it is advanced young adulthood.

    He saw, among other things, Babe Ruth's last three home runs.
