While 50 Cent made headlines for his disastrous first pitch, Chance the Rapper saved himself the embarrassment. The Acid Rap MC threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the White Sox game against the San Diego Padres at Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field on Friday.
Sporting a personalized Sox jersey, the Chi-town native wound up like a pro and threw the ball into the catcher’s glove. He was clearly happy with his performance, celebrating with a victory move.
Chance, along with his father Ken Bennett, spearheaded the #SaveChicago campaign. The goal was to have no victims of gunfire on the first day of Memorial Day weekend. It was a success. The city went 42 hours without a gun-related incident.
See Chance bring it on home.
