She’s got quite the pitch!
The Chicago White Sox recently played the Kansas City Royals at home at Guaranteed Rate Field. The theme for the game was the 2nd annual “Marian Catholic Night,” in which the local Marian Catholic High School band played for the crowd, among other things.
The opening pitch was thrown by Sr. Mary Jo Sobieck, who teaches theology at the school. And what a pitch! While many “first pitches” don’t go very well, her curve ball made it to home plate, straight down the middle – a perfect strike! (You can watch a video at the end of this article.)
She even did a cool ball trick before her pitch, in which she bounced the ball off her forearm back to her hand.
And it’s all made her the talk of the sports world!
Yahoo Sports MLB chimed in: “Your new favorite for best first pitch of the season: Sister Mary Jo Sobieck”.
And Fox Sports Kansas City joked in Twitter: “How many runs did Sister Mary Jo Sobieck give up tonight? Nun.”
She’s even scheduled to appear on Good Morning America on Monday!
