50 Cent Throws Terrible First Pitch At Mets Game — No Baseball Career Any Time Soon
5o Cent was given the honor to throw the first pitch for the Mets game on May 27. However, he didn’t quite take advantage of the opportunity — his pitch went wide left and didn’t come even close to the catcher, Anthony Recker, on home plate!
We’ve seen toddlers throw better than that!
His left-handed throw sailed so far left that it almost hit a cameraman! The cameraman was standing far enough away from the plate that, ordinarily, he would have been able to completely avoid getting hit, but clearly he was not far enough!
Keep your cool, 50 Cent! Mets pitcher, Jonathan Niese, and 50 Cent laughed off the embarrassing throw, as fans threw up their hands disappointment.
