"I'm like, 'Wait a minute.' He threw it back to her and she fielded it barehanded".

Sobieck got rave reviews after she bounced the baseball off of her arm and proceeded to throw a curveball for the first pitch.

Sister Mary Jo Sobieck, originally from St. Cloud, Minn., took the mound for a pregame first pitch at the White Sox-Royals game Saturday in Chicago. Oh, yeah. I think that she played some softball growing up and stuff so she definitely had a background. We talked to her a little bit but before we were talking to her, she was talking to someone and she wanted to warm up.

The White Sox - who played the rest of the game without Sobieck - lost to the Royals, 3-1.
