    Carly Rae has an excuse — she's not an athlete — but what about John Wall and Denard Robinson?

    Update - July 15, 11:00 a.m. EDT: This piece has been updated and re-posted to reflect Carly Rae Jepsen's recent outstanding contribution to field of tragicomically poor ceremonial first pitches.

    New Addition: Carly Rae Jepsen

    1. Mariah Carey

    2. Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory

    3. Shawn Johnson

    4. John Wall

    5. Adam Carolla

    6. Adam Carolla (Second Try)

    7. Carl Lewis

    8. Karen Peterson (a retired schoolteacher)

    9. Gary "Baba Booey" Dell'Abate

    10. Denard Robinson

    11. Charlie Brown

    12. Joan Steinbrenner

    13. Ex-Manchester United star Gary Neville

    14. The Kardashians (Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim)

    The lesson here: if you're ever asked to throw out a first pitch, make sure to do some ceremonial warming up beforehand.
