Yesterday at the Mets/Pirates game 50 Cent threw the worst first pitch of all time, nearly hitting a camera man on the field. The pitch was just flat out awful. But did 50 Cent intend to throw the ball so horribly because he knew it would get people talking? Did 50 Cent do this for media attention? Most likely.

TMZ has obtained footage of 50 Cent throwing warm up pitches before he threw out his televised first pitch, and let’s just say things went much better.

Watch 50 Cent throw a good warm up pitch below.

Now that’s much better.

After throwing out that horrible first pitch yesterday, 50 Cent took to social media, reminding the public that he’s a rapper and not a ball player.

50 Cent‘s new album Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win hits stores June 3rd. He’s also set to perform at Hot 97 Summer Jam this weekend.
