Arizona Diamondbacks' Brandon McCarthy Criticizes 50 Cent's Pitch

"Is 50 Cent sure he's not right handed?" McCarthy says.

Brandon McCarthy, a Major League Baseball player who pitches for the Arizona Diamondbacks, recently criticized 50 Cent's opening pitch, which took place during a New York Mets game yesterday (May 27). 

"Is 50 Cent sure he's not right handed?" McCarthy, an 8-year Major League Baseball player with an ERA of 4.17, says in a Twitter post following the rapper's first pitch. 

McCarthy wasn't the only one to critique 50. ESPN's Buster Olney also commented on the pitch, saying the rapper may need to be "consoled about his first pitch." Olney offered advice for 50 Cent, saying he might get consolation from viewing another criticized pitch. 

50 Cent responded to criticism of his pitch today (May 28).  

"The sh!t almost hit the camera man damn, if you look close you can see them moving the plate. Lol #smsaudio #animalambition," 50 Cent said. "I'm a hustler not a Damn ball player. LMAO."

    The Geek Unit bloggers said his throw was a desperate gimmick used to help generate a buzz for his album that has zero buzz and is likely to flop horribly.

    baseball is a whiteboy sport, i would be more worried about fif if he threw a perfect pitch. this just proves he really who he say he is, a hood nigga with no daddy from the hood who sold crack and never had a childhood like that.

      Exactly, he needs to play a real black sport where it's okay to kiss your boyfriend when drafted to play professional football or it's okay for a grown man to blow into another mans ear during a playoff basketball game.

    Godfather 50 is from the streets. He didn't have a father to throw baseballs with him as kid. You better believe he could throw that crack rock straight into your hands or catch a bullet in his teeth though.

    That pitch symbolizes his carrer.....started out correct and then veered to the left.

  • TRE

    Its all the weight training he does his chest wont allow him to throw overhand and has no flexibility thats why baseball players train with restriction ropes and dont weight train lol
