Conor McGregor joined the short list of all-time worst ceremonial first pitches in history on Tuesday night.

The former two-division UFC champion took the mound at historic Wrigley Field in Chicago prior to the Cubs’ 9-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins. “The Notorious,” dressed to the nines, loosened up a bit before heaving his pitch to the third base side, nearly drilling a fan sitting in the front row.
