The ceremonial first pitch is a baseball tradition that dates back to the roots of the game.  The ritual marks the end of pre-game festivities and the beginning of play.  Originally the ball was thrown from a guest’s seat to the pitcher or catcher of the home team.  Rapper and singer “50 Cent” would be lucky if that were still the tradition.   His wild first pitch at last night’s Mets game from the mound has gone viral.  It doesn’t even come close to home plate.

FOX 2 has had two anchors throw the 1st pitch at St. Louis Cardinal games in the last two weeks.  Check out April Simpson and John Pertzborn’s attempts.
