Ceremonial first pitches are often a fun part of a baseball game, and they give fans a good reason to make sure they get to the park early.

Sometimes they go well, sometimes they don't. When rapper 50 Cent threw the first pitch at a New York Mets game, it most certainly did not go well.

In his defense, 50 is a rapper, not an athlete. But even still, this one was almost unfathomably bad.

His windup was a little erratic, but it was fine enough that it wasn't immediately obvious how badly this was going to be botched. It almost looks like he forgets to keep holding onto the ball as it soars off to the left before he follows through where a usual release point would be.

If he was going for a sneaky no-look throw to a camera man, he absolutely nailed it.
