Yikes! Maybe don't call Carly Rae Jepsen to throw out the first pitch

Blame the fact that she's Canadian? Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen was invited to throw out the first pitch for the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday -- but the singer, it turns out, doesn't quite have the arm it takes to send it over the plate. Or even more than a few feet in front of her. 

During practice pitches, Jepsen seemed to be having some trouble figuring out how to maneuver the pitch, but hope remained high. Then, when it came time for the real thing, the singer was unable to release the ball on time, sending it straight to the ground. She immediately covered her face in shame, visibly exclaiming "Oh no!"

Jepsen's poor performance on the field was actually kind of surprising -- she'd kicked off an Orioles game earlier in the season and managed to get it past the mount, at least.
