Jepsen has fun with first-pitch fail

Call me maybe – just not to throw out a first pitch.

Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen had a good laugh at herself

after she spiked the ceremonial first pitch at a Tampa Bay Rays

game on Sunday.

Jepsen, best known for the catchy Top-40 hit ”Call Me Maybe,”

posted a text-message conversation between her and her brother on

Twitter that had the hash tag ”sticktoyourdayjob.”

She also posted: ”So apparently I made ESPN with my fail of a

pitch. Lol- Daddy must be so proud.”

The right-handed Jepsen set up from the rubber, with a catcher

18 feet away. Her pitch barely cleared the mound

(http://bit.ly/15wzkrs ). When she realized where the ball went,

she covered her face, laughed, and raised her hands in mock

pride.
