Last Saturday night, Sister Mary Jo Sobieck took to the mound to throw the ceremonial first pitch at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago before the White Sox hosted the Kansas City Royals. She made believers out of baseball fans everywhere.
It would appear that this nun is quite the athlete. Sister Mary Jo threw a perfect strike with impressive movement on the ball. She revealed to the media that she also has a 76 mph fastball in her arsenal of pitches.
Despite playing the God-is-on-our-side card, the home team did not win that game. And even though Sister Mary Jo might be a White Sox fan, she’d probably be a better fit with the Angels or Padres.
