Batter Up: 50 Celebrities Throwing Out The First Pitch At Baseball Games

Batter Up: 50 Celebrities Throwing Out The First Pitch

Tonight, the best players in Major League Baseball will face off against one another in the league’s annual All-Star Game. While there will likely be plenty of fastballs and homeruns on display during the Midsummer Classic, we here at VH1 Celebrity had an idea that might help improve the chances that a non-sports fan would tune-in to the game. What if the commissioner introduced a new idea wherein celebrities would throw out the first pitch of every inning, not just a single one before the game started? (We know, we know, it’s a genius idea.)

While that idea (probably?) won’t be implemented this year, here’s hoping that Bud Selig sees this post and makes this change in time for next year’s affair. In the meantime, please check out this hilarious gallery of celebrities —including the likes of Mariah Carey, Barack Obama, Bill Murray, Charlie Sheen and current holder Worst First Pitch Ever™ title holder Carly Rae Jepsen — winding up and attempting to throw a baseball 60 feet and 6 inches.

Keep Your Eyes On The Balls: The 15 Hottest MLB Players


The MLB All-Star Game is tomorrow night, Tuesday July 16, at 8 PM EST, and the teams are already assembled and ready to play at Citi Field. We’re all very excited, but if we were in charge of putting the roster together, we probably wouldn’t pick the teams based on athletic ability, but raw sex appeal.

Baseball is a sport that’s full of sexy double entendres and flying balls and the 15 hot MLB players on our list seem to know all about this. Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury slides into third base as often as he can, Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp steams up the gossip rags with Rihanna, and New York Yankees’ player Robinson Cano brings a steamy swagger to everything he does.

Let’s just say that we understand that their our rules and stats and all that, but when it comes to these 15 studs, we just want to be taken out to their ball-game.
