Fiddy's motion was awkward, and the ball sailed far to the left of the catcher, making everyone wonder if he was aiming for the side of his boyhood Queens home.
The rapper's toss did get a lot of air play and now sources say the embarrassing toss might have intentional after footage emerged of the “In Da Club” rhymer throwing perfect tosses during his warm-up.
“He did it so he would get all the press,” one insider told the N.Y. Post. “He’s got a new album coming out, a new TV show on Starz and he wants to launch a tour.”
But a rep for Fiddy denies it was a publicity stunt: “It’s apparent in his excitement on the mound that he released the ball too early, clearly not a stunt.”
Either way, it worked.
