WATCH: Sister Jean throws out first pitch at Cubs game, jokes on social media

The Chaplain for Loyola Men's basketball is crushing it at 104 years old

NBC Universal, Inc.

Sister Jean, the chaplain for the Loyola-Chicago men's basketball team, threw out the first pitch at Monday's Cubs-Brewers game at Wrigley Field.

She hilariously joked about "having Tommy John surgery" on Twitter after the fact.

Sister Jean earned the spotlight in 2018. Then, Loyola's basketball team went on an unthinkable Cinderella run that saw them reach the Final Four of the NCAA March Madness tournament.

At 98, Sister Jean was constantly seen on television cheering for the team and celebrating each win. As the team's chaplain, she advised the players, helped them keep their grades up and led team prayers.
