A League of Her Own: Mariah Carey throws out fashion sense, first pitch at Japanese baseball game

Regardless of what kind of grip she used for the ceremonial first pitch at a Japanese baseball game early this morning, Mariah Carey threw fans a curveball with her wardrobe.

After LaTroy Hawkins blews last night’s game for the Yankees, it’s only a matter of time before the team signs Carey to a lucrative deal. Hey, she’s already got more hits this year than Morgan Ensberg.

Then again, there’s that whole Derek Jeter thing. It was hard enough to patch up his friendship with A-Rod, so maybe bringing an ex-girlfriend into the mix isn’t such a good idea.
