*50 Cent’s attempt to throw out a first pitch yesterday went viral immediately – and not because it was good.

In fact, one of the videos is titled “50 Cent Throws the Worst First Pitch in Baseball.” It happened Tuesday night before the Pittsburgh Pirates played the New York Mets at Citi Field.

50 Cent first pitch 2

Standing on the rubber 60 feet, 6 inches from home plate, 50 wound up and launched a left-handed toss that went nowhere near Mets catcher Anthony Recker. It sailed left, bounced to the backstop and nearly hit a cameraman standing near the Mets’ on-deck circle.

All 50 could do was shrug and smile at New York pitcher Jonathon Niese.

Watch below:

Wearing a Mets jersey with No. 50 and the name Jackson on the back, 50 – born Curtis Jackson III – held a bat as he posed for pictures with Curtis Granderson and other Mets on the field during batting practice.

The artist was born in nearby South Jamaica and has a postgame concert at Citi Field scheduled for June 14.
