Don’t worry, Will Ferrell isn’t starring in a Major League remake (not yet, at least). But the 47-year-old actor did play with 10 different Major League Baseball teams in just one day!
On Thursday, the Anchorman star was traded between 10 MLB teams and played at all nine positions on the field. And he wasn’t half bad!
The players embraced the funny man as one of their own teammates. Though, the actor’s value as a free agent was questionable…
Right before putting on his first uniform of the day, the comedian explained himself to ESPN‘s Mike & Mike:
“It just dawned on me, with the transient nature of sports today, with a lot of the players changing teams all the time, that a lot of these clubs now are really looking for a clubhouse presence. You know, a 47-year-old journeyman to provide the intangibles, and that’s what I can provide. By journeyman I mean someone with no baseball ability whatsoever.”
Ferrell took to the field to raise money for the fight against cancer. In collaboration with his company FunnyOrDie, the star’s game day footage will air in an untilted HBO special later this year!
Ch-ch-check out the actor’s uniform changes and other hilarious highlights from his day on the field in the video (below)!
