Rapper 50 Cent made his bid for the worst first pitch ever before Tuesday's New York Mets game. Now, a few days later, we have a way to see just how bad it was in comparison to other notable first pitches.

The Washington Post came up with a terrific graphic that shows the location of notable first pitches, ranging from Barack Obama and George W. Bush to Stone Cold Steve Austin and Justin Bieber. As you can see, 50 Cent wasn't the first celebrity to hook his throw wildly outside of the strike zone.

If this was just a way to get free publicity, congratulations, 50 Cent. Your first pitch appears to be the worst of the bunch.
