Sister Act II: Back on the Mound at Busch Stadium

Dominican Sister Mary Jo Sobieck, a theology teacher at Marian Catholic High School in Chicago, kicked off the 2019 baseball season by throwing her second ceremonial first pitch at a professional baseball game. Last year, sporting sneakers and a Marian Catholic t-shirt over her white habit, Sr. Mary Jo threw a solid strike ahead of a White Sox game in Chicago. This week, she did the same at Busch Stadium, the home of her beloved St. Louis Cardinals. Sr. Mary Jo's divine arm was celebrated last year with a bobblehead made in her image, and now, a treasure for any sports enthusiast -- her very own baseball card. Read more about Sr. Mary Jo's viral fame and how it's helped her give back to her students in this article from Catholic News Service.
