Will Ferrell's brief minor league baseball career

05.17.2010

If you weren't tuned to Sportscenter a week or so ago, you may have missed Will Ferrell take the mound for his first minor league baseball game.

Ferrell appeared incognito as ex-convict Rojo Johnson, a promising pitcher for the Houston Astro's Triple-A affiliate team, the Round Rock Express. As you'll see below, "Rojo Johnson" only managed to get a single official pitch over/near the plate before being literally chased off the field.

Ferrell was in the area to promote a fundraiser (his Will Powered Golf Classic) when the opportunity for the stunt was brought up by the Express' CEO.

The fake credentials of Ferrell's mustachioed beer-swilling alter-ego: "Johnson, who was born in East Texas but was raised in Venezuela, recently had his prison sentence commuted. He served time for running a smuggling ring that imported rare and illegal species of reptiles into the United States from South America during the mid-to-late 1990s."

Extra Tidbit: Ferrell has already tackled basketball, auto racing, figure skating and kid's soccer on screen -- what other popular or obscure sport would suit him best?
