Data-Driven Journalism Proves 50 Cent’s First Pitch Was Not Good

By 05.29.14


The Washington Post’s Wonkblog, an exercise in journo-splaining the news, wanted to scientifically prove 50 Cent threw a terrible first pitch.

Because, you see, we can’t trust our eyes. Or our guts. No. Only the numbers. Truth in data. So they mapped the landing point of dozens of first pitches over the years. And whadda ya know? George Bush, Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg all know how to hit a mitt.

Fitty? Not so much.
