Carly Rae Jepsen’s First Pitch At Rays Game May Be The Worst In Baseball History

Forget maybe. It looks like Major Baseball League won’t be calling Carly Rae Jepsen ever!

The 27-year-old Canadian pop singer threw the first pitch at Sunday night’s Tampa Bay Rays home game, and her effort was less than pitch perfect. After winding up, Carly released the ball just a second too late, causing the ball to roll to the first-base line and hitting a camera. Sadly, the ball was nowhere near home plate. Clearly mortified, Carly handled the moment as best she could, bursting into giggles and covering her face in embarrassment before throwing her hands in the air.

After leaving Tampa’s Tropicana Field, the fiery redhead posted images on Instagram, poking fun at her major league goof. “A before and after,” she wrote next to an image of her terrible toss. “Me taking the mound. Me knocking the camera out of the photographers hands with the baseball. And me getting a sympathy hug from the catcher. Omg.”

Steve Ellis, a former pro baseball pitcher and author of the “I Am A Pitcher” Facebook page, called the toss “the worst pitch” he has ever seen. “Looks like she was gripping the baseball a little too firmly,” he told MTV News. “Gotta grip it like an egg, Carly. Like an egg. Let her know if she’d like to hone her accuracy, she should stop on by my Facebook page.”

Watch the video below. Do you think Carly is responsible for the worst first pitch in MLB history?
