Of all the Toronto Blue Jays that 101-year-old Kitty Cohen will have a chance to meet when she throws out the first pitch for Sunday’s Mother’s Day game, it’s manager John Gibbons she really wants to chat with.

“Because (the players) have to listen to him,” said Cohen, who will become the oldest person in Canadian history to throw a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game. “(Gibbons) is the one who leads them to victory, he is the one who puts (the players) in good moods, and he is the one who gives them hell.”
