Mariah Carey Fails to Throw Pitch at Baseball Game

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Sports, Clothing, Videos, Oops Videos,

Mariah Carey makes yet another oopsieNewlywed Mariah Carey has made a fool of herself yet again. Whilst visiting Japan recently, the failed actress attended a Yomiuri Giants vs.Rakuten Eagles baseball game, given the honor of throwing the first pitch. Unfortunately, it appears that either her very uncomfortable attire or unnecessarily-high heels got in the way of allowing her to successfully throw the ball from the mound to the catcher.

Lucky for us, it was all caught on tape! In the video, which can be seen after the jump, the scantily-clad pop star managed to at least throw the ball a measly-looking five feet, which then depressingly rolled towards home base. Clearly learning from her past oopsies, Carey continued to smile unflinchingly after her utter embarrassment, hurried off the field and off to do some kimono shopping (something she can at least do successfully).

Nick, you really ought to keep a closer watch on your wife.
