You've seen the 50 Cent pitch.
This is up there with it.
Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, a former NFL player and current co-host of the NBC television show "American Ninja Warrior," was a bit off with his first pitch before Thursday's Phillies-Giants game at Citizens Bank Park.
But give him credit - the fundamentals and mound presence were strong. He was collected in his windup, he checked the runners and then … the pitch.
He was kind enough to have some fun and join NBC Sports Philadelphia's Philly Sports Talk for a film session of the pitch, which you can watch above.
"We don't need to show film," Gbaja-Biamila said. "We're running out of time."
There was plenty of time.
As you can see, the pitch fell a tad short of the plate and the Phillie Phanatic was not impressed.
Still, Gbaja-Biamila was a great sport.
"Well, I grew up in the hood," Gbaja-Biamila said with a smile. "So we didn't play baseball."
And this didn't help …
"They deflated the baseball, too," he said with a laugh.
