Baseball first pitches are a silly thing. They mean nothing, are there just for show and you just know that 99 percent of the time the person throwing it is going to look like a complete idiot. When signing up to take on this gig, you think that these people would practice heavily to avoid being featured on a funny sports bloopers compilation. Apparently not though as time after time celebrities, politicians, animals and freaking fictional characters (yup Darth Vader is on this list, didn’t see that one coming on a sports channel did ya?) make fools of themselves trying to pitch a baseball.
The mistakes can often be repeated in these pitches. People like Michael Jordan, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg release their balls too early and that causes the ball to go careening off to the side of the plate like a swerving car. Other times people like Carly Rae Jepsen will release the ball too late so that it hits the dirt so fast you may not even see it. But the worst of the worst have to be the ones who just didn’t care. The ones who didn’t put one iota of thought into their throw and disrespecting the sacred tradition of baseball ceremonial first pitches. Yes we’re looking at you Mariah Carey with your ridiculous high heels to throw a baseball in Japan. How dare you. With all that out of the way, here are the 15 funniest first pitches in Baseball history. Enjoy!
