Carly Rae Jepsen First Pitch: Worst Throw In MLB History, Maybe? [VIDEO]

The Tampa Bay Rays won’t be calling Carly Rae Jepsen after the starlet had one of the worst ceremonial MLB pitches of all time. Jepsen barely made it past the mound at the Rays’ home game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Sunday.

Looking like a cute pop princess, the 27-year-old “Call Me Maybe” singer wore a baseball hat, tied-up Rays jersey, short shorts with white fishnet stockings and grey Converse. Even though the Canadian-born singer came dressed to impress, her throw was lackluster.

She held onto the ball much longer than she should have, so the baseball pounded into the ground, rather than sailing into the mitt of the catcher. Instead, it slowly rolled across the first baseline and even collided with a cameraman’s bag.

After her pitch didn’t even make it near home plate, Jepsen bowed her head and chuckled at her failed attempt. According to the New York Daily News, she threw a strike during a Baltimore game earlier this year, so maybe Jepsen’s nerves got the best of her this time.

Before the game, Jepsen took to her Twitter account to seek some advice from her followers, writing: “So excited to perform after the @RaysBaseball game Sunday in St. Petersburg, FL! Throwing out the first pitch...any advice? :)”

It seems her fans didn’t offer her any good tips, but Jepsen took the flub in stride. She wrote:

Her bad throw turned out to be good luck for the Rays. The Florida state team defeated the Houston Astros 5-0.

She’s not the only star to flub the first pitch. Singer Mariah Carey, NBA star John Wall, former track and field athlete Carl Lewis,  Howard Stern producer Gary "Baba Booey” Dell'Abate and Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory also share the title of having the “worst” first pitch.
