New York Mets catcher Anthony Recker would have caught the ceremonial pitch from rapper 50 Cent before Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
That is, if it had gotten to him.
Instead, Recker, a former Kane County Cougar, watched as the pitch careened left and nearly hit a cameraman.
In an effort to disrespect 50′s street cred, haters have screamed “worst ceremonial pitch of all time.” But first pitches are hard, really hard, just ask Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn.
But in the end, 50 Cent laughed it off and made some drug references.
