On Tuesday, 50 Cent threw out the first pitch at the Mets-Pirates game, and it caused a stir on social media for how bad the attempt was, as the ball goes nowehere near home plate.

But just how bad was it, especially compared to others famous first-pitchers that suffered a similar fate to 50 Cent?

Two days after the event, The Washington Post produced a graphic that shows where the pitch went, also showing where others ended up putting the baseball.

See for yourself where 50 Cent’s now-infamous first pitch stands up next to the likes of Michael Jordan, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Cookie Monster, just to name a few.
