Rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent showed that one thing he is not good at is throwing a baseball on Tuesday at Citi Field before the New York Mets played the Pittsburgh Pirates. In fact, even a dinosaur can throw a better pitch than the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ rapper.
50 Cent looked like he knew what he was doing when he did the wind-up before the pitch, but his grip of the ball was completely off. The pitch went nowhere near the plate, missing it by over 20 feet. The Mets catcher had to run off and get the ball. The only thing he hit was a poor guy with a camera behind home plate.
The rapper may have to get some advice from the baby Tyrannosaurus rex that threw out a first pitch at a San Diego Padres game earlier this month.
At least 50 Cent has some company. Ceremonial first pitches have brought out the worst in celebrities, including Carly Rae Jepsen, whose pitch was among the worst. Still, it will be hard to top Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory’s 2007 gem.
