Nun's awesome first pitch before White Sox game

Watch: Nun's amazing first pitch before White Sox game

Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt became the face of the NCAA men's basketball tournament while cheering her Loyola-Chicago Ramblers all the way to the Final Four. During Marian Catholic Night at Progressive Rate Field, Sister Mary Jo tossed out the first pitch before the Chicago White Sox played the Kansas City Royals.

'She had a whole routine, ' he told She had it planned out.

'I was just lucky to be back there. "She threw a flawless pitch". It ended up being great'.

Not only did she stand on the mound with a ton of swagger, popping the ball off her arm like she'd been there before, but she found the strike zone with an absolutely nasty curveball. We'd say Sister Mary Jo took a very good first step Saturday with her memorable first pitch.

'I'm like, "Wait a minute".

Now that would be some divine intervention.

Sister Mary Jo shows how it's done.
