Congratulations to Carly Rae Jepsen, the Cincinnati mayor and countless others, as there might just be a new contender for the worst opening pitch.

Rapper 50 Cent threw out the first pitch on Tuesday before the New York Mets took on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field, but it wasn't pretty. The throw was awkward, and the ball sailed far to the left of the catcher, making everyone wonder if the Queens native is really left-handed.

Fortunately for 50 Cent, he doesn't have to throw a baseball in order to make music or commercials for Vitamin Water.
