Nun throws ideal first pitch at White Sox-Royals game

Nun throws ideal first pitch at White Sox-Royals game

He said: 'She had a whole routine.

Sobieck, who works at Marian Catholic High School in IL, was selected by the school to toss the first pitch because the school was being honored that night at Progressive Rate Field. 'She had it planned out'.

One of the most impressive first pitches of all time.

Then the nun wound up and threw a ideal strike to White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito. She threw a ideal pitch. I was just lucky to be back there.

She topped the performance off by raising the roof as she walked off the field.

The £57million summer signing starred in Saturday's 3-2 win over Arsenal , making 99 passes with an accuracy of 91.2%. Mauricio Pochettino's men will therefore host another two home fixtures against Cardiff and Liverpool at Wembley.

"She was pretty good, actually", White Sox Manager Rick Renteria said.

A nun threw a hell. err. heckuva ceremonial first pitch before the Kansas City Royals-Chicago White Sox game in Chicago on Saturday. According to a 2008 profile in the Times of Northwest Indiana, she has also played and coached volleyball and is a "self-proclaimed tomboy". I was like, "Okay, she looks like she can play a little bit"'.

Renteria said he later chatted with Sister Mary Jo and found out she used to play center and short in softball. "She said, 'Sure.' Seems to be a really nice lady".

The White Sox could have used a little more help from Sister Mary Jo during the game, as they went on to lose 3-1 to the Royals.

"I said to her, 'Can you play for us?'" he continued.
