Pitchin' ain't easy.
Rapper 50 Cent threw out what could be considered the worst ceremonial first pitch in the history of Citi Field, or perhaps all of baseball, even possibly surpassing Howard Stern producer Baba Booey for that subjective honor.
The Queens rapper took the rubber before the Mets' 4-2 win over the Pirates on Tuesday night. Throwing left-handed, 50 Cent launched one way wide left of Mets catcher Anthony Recker and nearly stuck some nearby camera men.
Maybe he’s actually righty?
His pathetic toss quickly went viral and conjured images of Booey, Carl Lewis, Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory and fellow musicians Carly Rae Jepsen and Mariah Carey.
Later on, 50 said the bad pitch was actually the work of his alter ego — birth name Curtis Jackson.
“50 Cent is the best,” he told SNY reporter Kevin Burkhardt during an interview in the fourth inning. “Curtis Jackson, I don’t know what’s the matter with him.”
50 Cent f**ks up the first pitch at Citi Field.
He threw that sh!t like a b!tch!!!!
And did you see this n!**a Mets uniform?
Who was he throwing too tho?
Sh!t was so funny, even he had to laugh at himself! Thank You 50 for making my day!
