Will Ferrell is going to play a little baseball today – actually, a lot of baseball.
He’s traveling to Major League Baseball’s spring training in Arizona and playing every on-field position (and then some) for 10 different teams in five games in one day.
No, the Blue Jays are not amongst them.
Ferrell will travel to each game via helicopter and his comedy baseball efforts will be captured on camera for an upcoming U.S. TV special.
It’s all in the name of raising money for cancer research. Ferrell is doing the stunt to honor Bert “Campy” Campaneris, the former Kansas City Athletics ball player who played every position for the team in a single 1965 game against the California Angels.
Never tripped over a sprinkler, or hurt himself bunting. Imagine that.
Campaneris is expected to be in attendance at the games Ferrell plays in.
