Better than 50 Cent!
Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams threw out the first pitch at Thursday’s Brewers game, and it was accurate, provided that Carter-Williams was trying to hit the cameraman.
So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to…
Replicating this to any degree of exactitude could actually be a contestant's talent routine in a beauty pageant. Miss Texas Monique Evans's form, a horse mascot, and most importantly, the perfect watching-a-car-drive-by reaction, all make this an incredibly rare and difficult feat.
The Boston Red Sox held a 10th-anniversary reunion for players from the 2004 championship team before tonight's game. New Iowa Cubs player-coach Manny Ramirez tossed out the first pitch, until Johnny Damon came out of nowhere to snag it for justice, ten years later.
We thought we were done with 50 Cent's shitty first pitch, but we found another way to appreciate it. Enjoy these three photos that tell the tale of Fitty's pitch without actually showing the pitch. Think of it as a short play.
50 Cent threw out the first pitch at Citi Field tonight, so let's all watch as one of the most successful rappers ever fails to throw a baseball anywhere near home plate.
Tara the tabby, who saved her human from an attacking dog, threw out the first pitch at last night's Bakersfield Blaze game. As you might expect, since cats care nothing for pageantry and have useless muppet paws instead of hands, it was one of the worst first pitches in recorded history. #SticktoHeroics.

Swaggy P threw out the first pitch for the Dodgers tonight. It was the opposite of swaggy.
South Korean Olympic archer Ki Bo-Bae entered the Hall of Bizarre Korean First Pitches when she "threw" her pitch using a bow and arrow. She was relatively accurate for someone shooting a baseball-tipped arrow.
Rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo-ji broke the internet last month with this pelvis-bending ceremonial first pitch before a KBO game last month. It's far from the strangest South Korea has to offer.
The bar for an amazing ceremonial first pitch has been raised. Before a game between the Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions in Seoul, South Korea, rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo-ji rotated her whole body on one leg and threw an amazing pitch. It wasn't a strike, but how severely are we going to judge this?
As expected, Ivan Rodriguez retired from baseball today after 21 seasons, and did so as a Texas Ranger—accepting a plaque from Nolan Ryan and then doing the honors of throwing out the first pitch before tonight's game against the New York Yankees.
Gary Neville, who played right back for England and Manchester United for perhaps forever, before retiring this year, was in Chicago on Thursday night to throw out the first pitch before the White Sox-A's game. Man U and the Chicago Fire will be playing a friendly shortly. He and his 400 caps are there to sell the…
