Blow out the candles and count the home runs for Brooklyn war hero and baseball fan Arthur Walsh, who took to the mound at MCU Park to celebrate his 90th birthday.

The still-agile World War II paratrooper, who won a Purple Heart for his brave service in the South Pacific and Japan, tossed out the ceremonial first pitch for the Brooklyn Cyclones on July 26, proving age is merely relative.

The Brooklyn Dodger fan grew up on Flatbush Avenue just a pop-up fly from Ebbets Field where Dem Bums swatted those homers right out of the park, and his perfect pitch brought the Cyclones good luck, ’cause they won the game!

Standing O wishes Arthur a very “Happy birthday,” and looks forward to giving him more shout-outs for years to come.
