If you’re a sports fan, or a particularly devoted Will Ferrell fan, you may have heard about his latest stunt. Today, he will bounce around spring training games in the Cactus League (Arizona), playing all nine different positions in the various games. And he will travel from game to game in a helicopter. Pretty cool, right?
Initially, it was thought this was just Ferrell bein’ Ferrell or maybe a circuitous way of promoting Get Hard. Nope. It’s for an HBO special in conjunction with Ferrell’s Funny or Die.
There’s also a charitable aspect to the stunt, as organizations such as Cancer for College will benefit from the game-hopping.
You can follow the whole thing on Twitter today via the hashtag #ferrelltakesthefield or you can watch the thing on HBO whenever it airs, probably in a month or so.
