Harriette Gubel Celebrates 96 Years With a Seventh-Inning Stretch
Charlie and Hattie, sittin' in a tree...
Last year, the Juice brought you a feel-good story about Harriette "Hattie" Gubel celebrating her 95th birthday. The Fort Lauderdale lady is a big baseball fan, as it turns out, an even bigger fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, and an even bigger fan of Phillies Manager Charlie Manual.
On August 4, when the Phillies play the Marlins at Sun Life Stadium, Hattie will be escorted onto the field during the seventh-inning stretch where she'll sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," possibly throwing out a joke about how much peanuts and Cracker Jack cost back when she was a kid.
