Spring Training: Will Ferrell Played For 10 Different Teams In 1 Day
Want proof Spring Training doesn’t mean a whole lot? Will Ferrell lived out every boyhood dream and got to play with not only other Major Leaguers Thursday in Arizona, he got to do it with ten different teams in five different ballparks.
Again, this was all in one day. The goal? To play every position.
This was a stunt, all filmed reportedly for HBO and Funny or Die. MLB definitely made the most of it.
We don’t have all the videos, but below are just a few from Youtube that have been uploaded in the last 24 hours.
Chatting it up before his A’s debut.
A little BP. Making contact…
Making a nice catch between innings for the Cubbies.
Here he is catching for the Giants.
Several minutes of Ferrell ‘playing’ for the Mariners.
And at-bat for the White Sox. A predictable result. But noble!
Ferrell also struck out on three pitches pinch-hitting for the Cubs.
Memorabilia from Ferrell’s epic day will be sold at auction on MLB.com. All the proceeds will go towards Cancer for College and Stand Up to Cancer.
