50 Cent Explains Why His First Pitch Was So Bad: "I'm Not A Professional Pitcher"

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, threw what could well be the worst first pitch in the history of baseball.

The 38 year-old music mogul botched the ceremonial first pitch at the New York Mets game this past Tuesday (May 27th).

The attempted throw was branded "terrible" and "one of the worst first pitches of all time" by several sports commentators.

But now the rapper is trying to shake off the humiliation of it all, and during an appearance on 'Good Morning America Friday (May 30th), he explained what actually happened.

"It slipped! It slipped out of my hand," Jackson revealed, claiming he didn't do it purposely. "I'm not a professional pitcher, I make music."

Footage of the infamous pitch quickly spread, and even the NYPD couldn't resist taking jab at him about it.

"I actually got pulled over by New York City police, they pulled me over in my car, and he pulled me over and I said, 'I got my license, right?' Because I was a little nervous when he pulled me over," the rapper said. "I was, like, 'Oh no, what did I do?' and then he said, 'You know that pitch was terrible.'"

The 'Get Rich Or Die Tryin' actor was so embarrassed about the whole ordeal he quickly took to Twitter in an attempt to defend his woeful throw.
