Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West‘s publicized Chicago White Sox first pitch over the weekend is more important than fans think. Yeezy went to social media last night (September 23) to reveal just how much weight the iconic experience holds.
West went to Instagram Sunday and revealed his late mom Donda West also threw out the first pitch on the same mound over 10 years ago.
Yesterday, footage went viral of Kanye and his son Saint taking the mound.
The rapper, wearing a White Sox jersey, came out on the Guaranteed Rate Field diamond with Saint on his shoulders as the stadium’s speakers blared his 2007 track “Homecoming.” After removing Saint – who also tossed a ball from the pitchers’ mound – from his shoulders, West sent his first pitch in the vicinity of the waiting catcher, but the baseball fell short of reaching home plate.

Kanye also went to his Instagram page to share a pic from the epic moment.
This past weekend, Kanye treated his IG followers to a selfie shot of himself and his mini-me.
