The Chicago White Sox may be 24.5 games out of first place in the American League Central, but they're No. 1 when it comes to ceremonial first pitches. 

On Saturday, Sister Mary Jo Sobieck toed the rubber at Guaranteed Rate Field before Chicago's game against the Kansas City Royals, showed off a nifty handle and fired a strike down the middle:

She blessed the first pitch 💫 (via @cut4) https://t.co/YFn7fWPBw9

Chicago White Sox @whitesox

One of the most impressive first pitches of all time. 😱 https://t.co/PA7M4iC9X5

Based on that toss, she may be worth a look on a minor league deal.
