92-year-old World War II veteran Burke Waldron has put all major league batters on notice with an impressive display on the mound before a Seattle Mariners game.

Waldron, a Petty Officer in the navy during World War II, took part in the traditional first pitch, a ceremony that takes place before all MLB games.

To commemorate Memorial Day, Waldron was invited to take the mound and delivered a solid first pitch to Mariners catcher Steve Clevenger.
