Skip to comments.Rapper 50 Cent threw out probably the worst first pitch ever

It's a good thing 50 Cent didn't hype up his first pitch at Tuesday's New York Mets game against the Pirates with a tagline like "Throw a Strike or Die Tryin'." If he had, he'd be dead.
Instead, he's just embarrassed and he's the new owner of the worst first pitch in history. We don't say that lightly. Baseball has given us some horrible first pitches over the years, but 50 Cent just took things to a new level of ridiculousness.
Watch this thing. Oof. It's as bad as his catalog after "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
As bad first pitches by "musicians" go 50's is worse than Mariah Carey's and Carly Rae Jepsen's, two of the all-timers in that category. At least they got the ball going in the right direction. Mr. Cent looked like he spotted Ja Rule in a dugout and was trying to bean him. He might want to use that excuse actually; it may help him get back some of his hip-hop cred.
This is even funnier because 50 looked the part and his wind up was decent. It seemed like he might actually throw a respectable first pitch. But then his body went one way, his arm went another and we were all treated to first-pitch disaster.
It might be time for 50 to restart his training regimen from the "In Da Club" video and try this again next year:

You know you suck when even 0bama, whos limp wristed, pie throwing 1st pitch fail while wearing mom jeans set the standard for 1st pitch failure thinks you should man up.
Hard to believe anyone could be worse than the lyin’king.
I think it’s a tie.
With some work it could be a killer pickoff move!
Well like the rumor goes, most of these gangsta rappers are flaming faggitos, that’s why they worship jail - It’s got free unlimited male sex. A guy I knew use to record them in the late 1990s in New York city, he said they would do their gangsta raps talking all kinds of tough, then make out with each other on the couch while he mixed the tape. EEWW
It was a wild/bad throw. However, he looked (to me) like a heterosexual man making a wild/bad throw. I cannot say the same about Obama.
Purty durn sad huh?
Looked to me like a righthander throwing left handed.
Now that you mention it, that makes sense. Poor guy. Didn’t he practice ahead of time? If he couldn’t get the ball consistently over the plate, why do this to himself?
The sports writers are having a lot of fun with this:
‘It’s a good thing 50 Cent didn’t hype up his first pitch ... with a tagline like “Throw a Strike or Die Tryin’.” If he had, he’d be dead.’
‘Mr. Cent looked like he spotted Ja Rule in a dugout and was trying to bean him. He might want to use that excuse actually; it may help him get back some of his hip-hop cred.
‘This is even funnier because 50 looked the part and his wind up was decent. It seemed like he might actually throw a respectable first pitch. But then his body went one way, his arm went another and we were all treated to first-pitch disaster.’
That was a fun & interesting video to watch. You made your case.
Better to shank it like that than hit it into the dirt halfway to the plate.
I challenge any man here to go outside and throw a decent pitch with the wrong hand. LOL
As a woman who can’t throw a decent pitch with my right hand...
I did catastrophically break my right arm once. I had to try & take class notes by writing with my left hand. It was misery itself, so I can relate.
Nobody has ever asked me to make a first pitch. IF i was ever asked i would have to warm up my arm for half an hour, and i would throw a strike (probably) and look good doing it. However if i ran out to the mound cold and just threw that first ball in front of 70,000 fans the ball might not make it to home plate. The first three or four throws are painful and all over the place as my arm is old cold and traveled.

My 1st couple of throws feels like sand in my rotator cuff. 25 years of high school baseball batting practice has taken a toll.
another one taught by a woman how to throw a ball, just like obama. but both are more manly than Harry Reid.
Not worth 49 cents.
Fiddycent can’t throw worth a dime
Is anyone else shocked, that a rapper such as 50 Cent is given this honor and legitimacy, of throwing out the first ball at a game? Isn’t this an endorsement by major league baseball of rap and everything involved with the rap ghetto culture? Is that really the image baseball wants to convey?
50 looks just like the Cincinnati mayor throwing.
Speaking of embarrassing if you scroll down on the same link you see a woman catch a flying bat one handed while her significant other tries to go fetal.
Might get flamed for this, but 50 Cent is actually on record supporting Republicans and conservative ideas. He’s a notable right-of-center celebrity.
LOL, for sure.....
You get what you pay for-50 cent is about right....
Did you finally get to graduate? ;^)
I'm looking at 2 more years and I'll “graduate” the same year as my youngest son.
I've been out of coaching for the last 2 years, spending more time running a ministry called Eternal Pastime; we collect new/used sports equipment (mostly baseball)and send it to missionaries doing sports evangelism in some of the world's poorest countries. Taking my 2 sons to Cuba in about a month.
THAT was pretty funny.
With a name like “fungoking”, I figured you’d be into coaching. Keep doing the God’s work, and thanks for being a good sport.
So they locked grills in jail?
