World War II veteran Ben Sofka was out Tuesday night celebrating his 100th birthday at Fenway, watching his beloved Red Sox take on the Oakland Athletics.

Sitting in the front row along the first base line, Oakland’s Billy Burns hit a foul ball. That’s when the ballgirl corralled the mis-hit and delivered the ball to Sofka.

“Look who has the ball, our hero of the night,” the television announcer said. “Now that is a great birthday.”

The memories continue to grow at 100.
