A Chicago White Sox employee may have made baseball history with the ceremonial first pitch against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday—and not in a good way.

In what Deadspin describes as a strong contender for the worst ceremonial first pitch of all time, the pitch from the team’s employee of the month went nowhere near the plate, but hit the camera of team photographer Darren Georgia, who was standing between the mound and first base line.

Georgia was unhurt and later joked that he never knew it was going to be his 15 minutes of fame, reports MLB.com.

“Life comes at you pretty fast,” the team quipped in a tweet, sharing the photo that Georgia still managed to get. (Five years ago, 50 Cent threw another contender for worst first pitch ever.)
