The Mets Offer 50 Cent A Chance To Redeem Himself After Awful Pitch
(AllHipHop News) Rap star 50 Cent is being courted by the MLB to redeem himself after throwing what could be the worst first pitch in professional baseball's history.
50's terrible pitch went viral in May of 2014 when he was the guest of honor during a Mets Game game at Citi Field.
The rapper threw the first pitch of the game, which turned out to be an epic fail.
Now, the New York Mets want to give 50 a chance to redeem himself with a new offer to toss out the first pitch during a game.
Even though his pitch flopped the rapper was a good sport about it in follow-up interviews.
“I had no idea that throwing a bad pitch would be so big. It was coming across CNN! ESPN, CNN," 50 Cent said during an interview promoting his new movie "Den Of Thieves."
"I was like, whoa, not the way I want things out here at the moment when I’m getting ready to run this music and I’m on CNN and it looks like my arm’s broken. I’m like, ‘What the [expletive] happened to me?'" the rapper said.
According to sources, 50 probably won't bite, since he's waiting for a bigger stage to redeem himself - the World Series.
So far, 50 has yet to reveal whether he would accept the New York Mets' new offer, but it seems doubtful according to the rapper.
“Listen, no one warned me,” 50 Cent said. “No one said: ‘Risk versus reward!’ I would have kept my a** in the stands. This is never going away.”
