Maybe 50 Cent should stick to rapping.

The recording artist threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's Mets-Pirates game at Citi Field. However, the pitch never quite made it to home plate. It was, as Bob Uecker would say, "juuuuust a bit outside."

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, will have a postgame concert at Citi Field on June 14, hence the reason why he was at the game on Tuesday night. But one can only hope the concert goes better than his pitching appearance.
