Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor threw out a disastrous first pitch at Wrigley Field on Tuesday.
McGregor, dressed in a suit, sent the baseball hurtling high into the air ― and sideways — before the Chicago Cubs’ 9-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

Twitter users jabbed the UFC star, with some even joking it was worse than that time he tried to throw a football:

Check out some of the reactions here:
Folks I’m calling this as the worst first pitch in history. It’s so much worse than 50 cent, Chris Rock, or Baba Booey because he’s a professional athlete. https://t.co/xlevlFwaXR

The DGAFness to throw the ball at that intent with no intentions of throwing a strike with the camera crew literally right in front of hit face is the DGAFness I can get behind. https://t.co/Ow8Ii4Orss
