Mets offer 50 Cent chance to redeem himself with another first pitch

Mets offer 50 Cent chance to redeem himself with another first pitch”

Toss a strike this time!

Maybe he was throwing outside for the intentional walk?

Back in 2014, Fiddy, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, delivered one of the most comically bad first pitches before a Mets game. "Listen, no one warned me", 50 said.

He also spoke on how the pitch has lived on in infamy, even getting its own baseball card.

Jackson has marveled at the staying power of his pitch, a lefthanded throw that immediately veered to the right of catcher Anthony Recker, nicking a cameraman behind home plate at Citi Field.

Despite his first attempt filling him with regret, 50 has expressed that he would like the opportunity to show he can actually throw.

One of Jackson's publicists said he has been invited by various teams, including the Mets, to try again, but that he is waiting for a special occasion, such as perhaps a World Series invite.

The invite comes after the 42-year-old rapper recalled the blunder during a Newsday interview posted on January 9 where he revealed he has to "redeem" himself "at some point".

Well, either the Mets are offering 50 Cent a legit shot at redemption, or they know they'll get some good free press from another errant pitch from the hip-hop star. If he botches another first pitch, Twitter might roast him into oblivion.
