There are many top athletes and celebrities in the world who are guilty of terrible showings of athleticism and coordination. For example, recently Nick Young threw out the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers game and it was so embarrassing that it immediately made this list -- and he's an elite athlete.

Check out Nick Young and the 10 worst first pitches in baseball history.

10. Charlie Brown, Peanuts Character

I get it, he's in a suit, but this is still very, very bad.

9. Carl Lewis, Track Star

His athletic skills back in the day must have diminished with age.

8. Barack Obama, President of the United State

President Obama should just stick to basketball, what do you think?

7. Denard Robinson, NFL Quarterback

I mean, come on dude, you're a quarterback. Well, not anymore -- he is more of a receiver in the NFL than anything.

6. Shawn Johnson, Olympic Gymnast

Baseball clearly isn't her sport. However, she does have gold medals to rub in all of our faces for making fun of her first pitch fail.

5. Nolan Ryan, Former MLB Pitcher

Was this the worst first pitch by a former pitching great? Probably.

4. Carly Rae Jepsen, Singer

Just a bit outside. Okay, give her a break, she doesn't do sports for a living. Or something like that.

3. Nick Young aka "Swaggy P", NBA Player

Only about 15 feet over the catcher's head. Maybe he's just too strong.

2. John Wall, NBA Star

Come on, John Wall. You're an elite athlete and can barely get the ball to the plate? Shameful.

1. Mark Mallory, Cincinnati Mayor

Reds fans were please to see their mayor throw the worst first pitch of all time. This was so bad I don't even think words can describe it.
