She had it planned out.

First, Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt captured countless hearts during Loyola's run to the Final Four with her wit and boundless fandom. She had a mitt and a ball.

The Chicago White Sox celebrated Marian Catholic High School Night at Guaranteed Rate Field on Saturday.

"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.

Even White Sox manager Rick Renteria had to admit she was "pretty good", revealing that he spotted the nun practicing before her big moment. "She stepped back at about 45 feet and threw a bullet", he said.

Sister Mary Jo may have been able to summon the divine during the pregame, but the man upstairs apparently left shortly thereafter. She threw a strike right into the catcher's glove.

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.
