No one expects a pop singer to get up on a major league mound and throw a strike. But at the very least they should be able to get it somewhere in the same neighborhood as the batter’s box, right?
Well, for Carly Rae Jepsen, that was asking way too much.
The “Call Me, Maybe” singer was a guest of the Tamp Bay Rays over the weekend and got to attempt the ceremonial first pitch. I say attempt, because instead of getting the ball to the Rays catcher, Jepsen nearly took out a photographer on the field! Check out her “pitch” in slow-mo!
To her credit, Jepsen was more than happy to poke fun at herself on Twitter after the video went viral.
So apparently I made ESPN with my fail of a pitch. Lol- Daddy must be so proud. 👌—
