We have seen some pretty bad first pitches, but 50 Cent decided to take the cake with his first pitch before the Mets vs Pirates game.
50 Cent threw out the first pitch on Tuesday before the New York Mets took on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field in New York City, but it wasn’t pretty. The throw was awkward, and the ball sailed far to the left of the catcher, making everyone wonder if the Queens native is really left-handed. Even the cameramen who thought they were in a safe place got a wake up call.
Just how bad was it in comparison? Take a look at the chart below.

Just in case you missed the pitch here it is for you to see.
50 Cent responded to the wild pitch on social media, posting on his Instagram account later: “I’m a hustler not a Damn ball player. LMAO.”
