Mets fan celebrates 105th Birthday

MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WABC) -- Happy Birthday to the presumably "most experienced" New York Mets fan.

Tom Fennell turned 105 on May 12, 2016. Isn't that "Amazin'"?

Mr. Fennell lives in Manchester Township, New Jersey.

The picture above was taken when Mr. Fennell's family took him out for a birthday lunch Thursday afternoon.

He's been a baseball fan for a very long time and a Mets fan since the team was founded in 1962.

Back in 1911 when Mr. Fennell was born, there were just 46 states in the US, milk cost 8-cents per quart, bread was 5-cents per loaf, a postage stamp cost 2-cents, and the speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

Happy 105th Birthday!
