Will Ferrell is doing something crazy. Imagine that.
According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Ferrell is planning to play all nine positions on a baseball field Thursday in Arizona. Or, rather, on several baseball fields. Ferrell will have a helicopter take him to each of the eight Cactus League ballparks hosting games that day, and all for a good cause.
The first game of the day is between the A's and Mariners at noon local time. The Dodgers-Padres game is the last and starts at 6:15.
This, of course, will not be Ferrell's first professional baseball appearance. He showed up at a Round Rock Express game as a middle reliever named Billy Ray "Rojo" Johnson in 2010 as part of another cancer event.
If the 47-year-old utility man is looking for a major-league deal, he'll get to show off his stuff for plenty of teams.
