Sportscaster Bob Costas says that 50 Cent’s first pitch at New York Mets game in May was so bad that he didn’t need to ask to redo the pitch.
“50 Cent couldn’t have done better because he can’t throw a baseball,” Bob Costas says during an interview with TMZ. “It was gonna go sideways again.”
Costas himself asked for and was granted an opportunity to redo a first pitch attempt he made earlier this week at a St. Louis Cardinals game. “I knew I could do better because I had done better my whole life,” he says, “and then I did.”
After video of 50 Cent’s pitch emerged, 50 Cent made a series of Instagram posts that have since been removed.
“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 in one Instagram caption.
In another caption, the rapper added, “I’m a hustler not a Damn ball player. LMAO #smsaudio #animalambition,” he says.
