The Cubs brought out MMA star Conor McGregor to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and he turned in one of the worst throws we’ve seen.
50 cent, step out the way — we have a new champion for worst first pitch ever.

Of course, it doesn’t help that McGregor wears a suit with absolutely zero range of motion, but that toss was pathetic. The only aspect of this throw I will give him credit for is the confidence. See that nasty kick off the wall? That means McGregor put some juice on that thing, and he even opted to throw from the mound, which was a mistake in hindsight.
We’d sure love to see Mike Tyson get out there and show us his fastball. It’s gotta be better than this.
