She's 95 years young and Syblil Roos is as big a Houston Astros fan as ever.

After Saturday night's victory over the New York Yankees solidified her team's spot in the World Series, ABC13 caught up with the giddy almost-96-year-old outside Minute Maid Park. That's right: she still attends games.

Sporting an Astros jersey and a string of pearls, Roos gripped her walker as a stream of excited Houstonians spilled past her. A few even stopped to give her a hug.

As for how she handled the rollercoaster game? "Just normal," she said. "I don't have any heart problems."

Roos said she's been a baseball fan for as long as she can remember—since her dad started taking her to baseball games when she was a little girl growing up in California.

Now, a more than a few decades later, Roos told ABC13 that she will go to games for as long as she can. And she has a message for her team. "I'm just proud of the Astros," she said. "They've worked so hard and are always so nice."

As of the weekend, Roos planned to attend both Game 1 and Game 2 of the World Series.
