Wild Pitch: 50 Cent says he’s a Hustler, “Not a Damn Ball Player” [Video]
New York, NY – Throwing the first pitch at a ball came can be a great honour but it can also lead to cringing and ridicule. As 50 Cent found out Tuesday night, messing up a first pitch in the age of social media will not go unnoticed – especially in front of your home borough of Queens!
“50 Cent is not a baseball player. He made that clear last night (May 27) at New York’s Citi Field when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the New York Mets played the Pittsburgh Pirates. Well, tried to throw out the first pitch.
Unfortunately, 50′s throw was pretty bad, like maybe one of the worst first pitches of all time. People on Twitter were even polling whether he was worse than Tara, the ‘ninja cat’ or Carly Rae Jepsen, whose pitch also didn’t go so well.”
After the pitch was all said and done, Fif hoped on Twitter to poke fun at himself, reminding fans: “I’m a hustler not a Damn ball player. LMAO.” And that was followed by: “The sh!t almost hit the camera man damn, if you look close you can see them moving the plate. Lol…”
50 Cent is currently preparing for the release of his fifth studio album, Animal Ambition, on June 3, 2014. Click the jump link below to see the pitch and more commentary.
