Rapper 50 Cent, or Curtis James Jackson III, threw out the first pitch at the Mets-Pirates game on Tuesday night. He was on hand at Citi Field to promote an upcoming concert at the ballpark.
Well, he tried to throw out the first pitch.
His pitch was so bad, it didn't even pass through the batter's box.
That led to this tweet from National Football Post writer Joe Fortenbaugh:
Learning how to throw a baseball: Something I apparently have taken for granted all these years.— Joe Fortenbaugh (@JoeFortenbaugh) May 27, 2014
Amen to that, Joe.
