South Whitley’s Hilligoss celebrates 100th birthday with first pitch at TinCaps game

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Max Hilligoss blew out his candles with his fastball at the TinCaps game.

He has a lot of candles as the South Whitley native turns 100 on Monday. A lot of his immediate family – as he has four children, 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, and seven great great grandchildren – was in attendance to celebrate the milestone birthday.

Although the pitch bounced before home plate it was still a very impressive throw.
