TORONTO (AP) - 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.
