Will Ferrell, American comedian, producer and writer, have always been a baseball fan. Now, he was able to translate his passion into reality when he descended onto the field to play for 10 baseball teams in Arizona in a span of a day, according to ABC News.
He was, without question, excited.
“I’m actually hoping that the acting career is over after today. I think it’s pretty much the feeling out here that I’m gonna land with one of these clubs,” he told radio and TV celebrity Mike “Mad Dog” Russo before he stepped out to play.
“These teams need a clubhouse presence, and by presence I mean a 47-year-old flabby guy who doesn’t know how to play.”
He first played for Oakland and then Seattle wearing no. 19, the Associated Press reported. Despite his enthusiasm, “no ball was hit to him.”
He gave one of his fans a long hug before disappearing with police escort. A helicopter awaited to take him to his next destination, Tempe, where Chicago Cubs played against the Los Angeles Angels.
For Ferrell, his visit was more than a baseball game amidst the presence of his Hollywood persona.
He took the game seriously, though.
“I have life experiences, and I’m willing to do what it takes to get the job done,” he said. “I’m hoping to land a spot on the roster.”
