Carly Rae Jepsen Flubs First Pitch at Rays Game
Carly Rae Jepsen has set a new record — but not on the pop charts.
The Canadian songbird, who ruled the world in 2012 with her infectious “Call Me Maybe,” can now go down in history for one of the worst ceremonial first pitches of all time after she flubbed the toss at Sunday’s match-up between the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays.
After winding up on the mound wearing a No. 8 Rays jersey, Jepsen, 27, chucked the chunk of rawhide straight into the ground, sending it slowly rolling across the first-base line before hitting a cameraman.
Though clearly embarrassed that the pitch never crossed the plate, Jepsen threw her hands up and had a good laugh over the flub.
“A before and after,” she later wrote on Instagram. “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.”
