Kevin Hart Unleashes Slow First Pitch

Someone might want to explain to Kevin Hart what “heat” means.

Just when our collective palate was being rid of the awful taste that was 50 Cent’s ceremonial first pitch…the diminutive comedian hit the mound.

By some standards, Hart’s pitch Friday night at US Cellular Field was far superior to 50’s. I mean, his was at least on target. But, I’m guessing, Hart probably runs his mouth faster than his ball reached the plate.

Apparently, when Hart was done on the field, he took his tiny little throwing arm to the park’s “Fast Pitch” booth…where he hit 53 mph on the radar gun. Now, if you’re keeping track at home, this mean that Hart can throw a ball just a tick more than half as fast as Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman.

Dude might want to stick to comedy and playing in celebrity basketball games.
