Sister Mary Jo makes her return to Guaranteed Rate Field


When a nun shows off her skills as a pitcher and throws a perfect strike for a first pitch, you have Internet gold.

Sister Mary Jo Sobieck of Marian Catholic High School went viral when she first took the Guaranteed Rate Field mound on Aug. 18.

She returned to the South Side on Saturday and had some company in the form of Bulls forward and Chicago native Jabari Parker.

Watch the video above to see Sister Mary Jo's follow up. She followed the same routine, flicking the ball off the inside of her elbow and pointing to the mound, but the pitch itself bounced to the plate this time. She still had a big grin on her face immediately after.

Perhaps the White Sox are going back to the Sister Mary Jo well to get in some good graces.
