A bunch of nuns from the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province attended Game 1 of the ALCS and the ‘Stros gained. So the sisters are coming again for Game 6!
HOUSTON — If ever there was a time to name within the huge “NUNS,” the time is now!
The Houston Astros will host the Red Sox Friday in Game 6 of the ALCS and in the event that they win this one, the gang is headed again to the World Series.
During Game 1 of the ALCS, there have been particular friends in Minute Maid Park who lined the ‘Stros in prayer. Thirty nuns from the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province have been invited by Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale and the Astros gained 5-4 over the Red Sox. Coincidence? We assume not!
The ‘Stros want that very same luck Friday as they fight to finish the ALCS collection, so Mack invited the “Rally Nuns” again.
“The Dominican nuns, they were nicknamed the ‘Rally Nuns’ and we won so I’ve had lots of Astros fans, even people in the Astros organization ask me when the nuns are coming back,” Mack stated.
Seventy nuns and a priest shall be stationed within the Coca-Cola suite at Minute Maid Park for Game 6. One of the nuns will even be throwing the primary pitch, Mattress Mack informed KHOU 11 reporter Shern-Min Chow.
“It’s a big thrill to them to go out there,” stated Mack. “We secured a bus because a lot of them are elderly and can’t walk a long way so we’re going to let them off right in front of the place. They’re going to have a good time.”
