Even though the first pitch was an unintentional curveball that veered to the left, the Milwaukee Brewers may have had some divine intervention during their 10-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on June 26.
Sports enthusiast Sr. Mary Teresa Bettag, a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity, threw out the first pitch at the annual Ballpark Day of Faith. While nuns aren’t known for partaking in bullpen sessions, Sr. Bettag looked like a pro on the mound, resulting in cheers from the stands.
Sr. Mary Teresa is one of eight children and the daughter of Drs. Mark and Teresa Bettag. To read more and see more photos on Catholic Herald article click here: Local Nun Throws Out First Pitch at Brewers Game – Catholic Herald
