CeeLo Green

CeeLo Green celebrated the release of Goodie Mob’s first album in over a decade by throwing out the first pitch at the Dodgers game on Tuesday. “The Voice” star was joined by his fellow Goodie Mob groupmates Khujo, T-Mo, and Big Gipp at Dodger Stadium on his release day.

Clad in a Dodgers jersey, blue shorts, and sandals, CeeLo took the pitcher’s mound and threw the ball right across home plate. Luckily, he saved himself from the baseball hall of shame (see Carly Rae Jepsen).

Goodie Mob’s reunion album Age Against the Machine is out now and the Atlanta group is also taping a reality show for TBS called “The Good Life.”
