A lucky fan got a chance to throw out the first pitch at the Houston Astros game Tuesday. She was so excited that she forgot to let go of the baseball until it was far, far too late.

Take a look above. 

50 Cent, you're off the hook. Actually, no, you're not off the hook. Your first pitch will still go down in history for all the wrong reasons. But at least you have some company now.

In all fairness, this fan seemed like a good sport about the whole thing. She got what looked to be a warm hug from the team mascot, Orbit, and her unbelievable start to the game clearly motivated the 'Stros to a 4-2 win over the Oakland Athletics.
