NBC NEWS -- Rapper 50 Cent demonstrates that some things are better left to the pros.

50 cent - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - threw out the first pitch at the New York Mets game last night.

But it didn't quite go as planned.

He throws the ball almost sideways - a good ten feet wide of the plate.

The New York native took it all in good stride.

He got a good laugh about it afterwards, along with the team.
