Among the worst all time first pitches ever thrown, you can’t get much more heinous than 50 Cent’s wayward attempt in May 2014.

Yes, former Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory’s toss was an all-timer and Chris Pratt’s attempt was rather unbecoming, but it’d be difficult for anybody to challenge 50 Cent.

Luckily, Josh Jackson, who was drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns, gave it his best effort on Friday night.

In a word: Yikes. But hey, at least Jackson recognizes his own strengths and weaknesses.
