Kendrick Lamar threw out a first-pitch strike for the Dodgers

Kendrick Lamar is a big Dodgers fan. We're talking diehard. Back in 2013, Kendrick was still riding the success of his debut album "good kid m.A.A.d city" when he stopped by Dodger Stadium to catch Game 3 of the NLDS and posed for a picture with Dodgers legend Tommy Lasorda.

Now enjoying the critical acclaim of his second studio album, the Compton native again stopped by Chavez Ravine, this time to pose with Dodgers legend Orel Hershiser:


And to throw out a ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers hosted the Giants. On a scale of 50 Cent to 10, Kendrick's toss was a seven.

With Brandon McCarthy down for the year and Hyun-Jin Ryu still working his way back from a shoulder impingement, maybe L.A. should consider inking Kendrick to a short-term deal.
