'Puff, puff' pitch: Wiz Khalifa tosses first pitch in Pirates home finale
Rapper Wiz Khalifa made a cameo Wednesday at PNC Park to throw out the first pitch for the Pirates' last home game.
The Pittsburgh native might have been the secret ingredient to help the Pirates (73-85) to a 5-3 victory and complete a sweep in their series against the Baltimore Orioles (75-84).
Known for the 2010 hit song "Black and Yellow," which pays homage to the professional sports teams in Pittsburgh, Khalifa is not shy about his love for his hometown — or a certain illegal hobby that includes #420.
Donning a "Legalize It" T-shirt, Khalifa gestured a pretend "puff" before passing — er, pitching — the ball to home plate.
Fans who are disappointed with the Pirates' perfomance down the final stretch of the season found joy in the celebrity sighting.
Though, there was this hater:
Bad throw. His fingers were stiff from rolling too many j's— Nameless (@MajorKushCloud) September 27, 2017
Pirates weren't shy about photo ops...

Khalifa also took the opportunity to pose with a fellow musician.
