Health Secrets From The 100-Year-Old Pitcher At Fenway’s Centennial


Bill Hogan doesn’t take any special vitamins and kale is not a mainstay of his diet.

But on Saturday, the lifelong Red Sox fan will celebrate his 100th birthday; and on that day, he’ll throw out the first pitch to commemorate the 100th birthday of Fenway Park.

Hogan is svelte and quick-witted, with an enviable memory and 18 great-grandchildren — all of whom will be at the Boston ballpark Saturday to join in the festivities.

Hogan’s secrets for longevity? Stand-up comedy, good genes, regular work-outs, lots of interesting friends and looking forward to the future.

“I do look forward to every day,” Hogan said in an interview. “Tomorrow, I’ll be 100…and Fenway is 100. I am looking forward to that.”
