Last Saturday, a very unexpected guest opened the White Sox game and delivered what was probably the most impressive first pitch we’ve seen all season. Sister Mary Jo Sobiek took the mound, threw a killer pitch, and then instantly went viral.

She showed off an arm-bounce trick before throwing the pitch that made headlines, and because of it, she’s getting her own bobblehead. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame (who knew that was a real thing?) and Marian Catholic High School, Sister Mary Jo’s school, collaborated to honor her pitch.
It’s official! Sister Mary Jo Sobieck is getting her own bobblehead! Thanks to the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame, you can pre-order yours today! $5 from every Sister Mary Jo Bobblehead sold goes back to Marian Catholic! #GoSrMoJo https://t.co/vF92j2eZ3T pic.twitter.com/xCm6Z1ETTf

Want one for yourself? It’s for a good cause: $5 from every bobblehead purchase will go to Marian Catholic School.
