Jepsen has fun with pitch fail

Carly Rae Jepsen may be good at singing, but she's not so good at baseball

Carly Rae Jepsen had a good laugh at herself after her ceremonial first pitch proved a disaster at a baseball game.

The Call Me Maybe singer took to Twitter after revealing her lack of ball skills at the Tampa Bay Rays game at the weekend..

Carly tweeted: "So apparently I made ESPN with my fail of a pitch. Lol- Daddy must be so proud."

She also posted a text message conversation between her and her brother in which he told her to, "Stick to your day job".

Carly quipped: "Thanks dear brother of mine."

Her younger sister tweeted: "Look at the bright side you're the first one in the family to make it on @espn".

The right-handed singer's pitch barely cleared the mound. When she realised where the ball went, she covered her face, laughed, and raised her hands in mock pride.

Nobody expects perfection, especially at this stage of the game. The more gentle you are with yourself, the easier it will be to master this role. If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
