Twitter was also amused by the errant pitch.

50 Cent's terrible first pitch joins fellow musicians Mariah Carey and Carly Rae Jepsen on a growing list of non-sports types who shouldn't throw out first pitches.

50 Cent was born in South Jamaica, New York, and is scheduled to play a postgame concert at Citi Field on June 14. His new album "Animal Ambition" is due out June 3.
