Comparing Bryce Harper's helmet throw in Nats-Giants brawl to 50 Cent's first pitch
The comparisons have been rampant online, so let's have a look
Have another look at the video footage and watch the helmet:
For what it's worth, helmets aren't easy to throw, as they aren't exactly symmetrical. Plus, it's possible Harper was trying to just distract Hunter Strickland while preparing to throw a haymaker.
Still, the immediate place the internet took us was the notorious first pitch from rapper 50 Cent a few years ago in Citi Field.
And here they are side by side:
The 50 Cent pitch was clearly worse, right? He's throwing a baseball from a stationary position, not running at someone with his blood boiling and preparing for fisticuffs. Then again, Harper is the professional baseball player.
So which was a worse "throw," Harper's helmet toss or 50 Cent's "pitch?"
