Will Ferrell Plays All 9 Positions In 5 MLB Baseball Games [VIDEO]

Will Ferrell played every position while suiting up for 10 teams on the baseball field to raise awareness in the fight against cancer for a new HBO special from Funny Or Die in partnership with Major League Baseball. Ferrell traveled to five Cactus League stadiums by van and helicopter throughout the day.

“Ruth, Musial, Mantle, Will Ferrell,” “Who would have thought that one day those names would be synonymous? Show of hands – scratch that, never mind.”

“`When I embarked on this journey way back at breakfast,” Ferrell said, “I thought to myself, `Could I do it?’ The answer is yes.”

“There’s no doubt I turned some heads today, even if it was just for a moment,” Ferrell said. `I brought passion to the field, dedication, ability and a lot of ignorance. The ball moves fast out there, a lot faster than it looks on television. It’s like a speeding bullet. It’s horrible, terrifying.”

“Is there life in this 47-year-old arm?” he said.

“They say there’s nothing more American than grabbing a hot dog, heading to the ballpark, and watching nine guys from the Dominican Republic,” he said. “… But you know what, today I learned that was wrong. They had eight Dominicans, and one guy from Irvine, California.”

“Was I the best player on the field today?” Ferrell said. “Maybe, maybe.”

Then he led the crowd in a chant — “May-be, may-be, may-be.”
