Will Ferrell - Rookie of The Year!

By Mauricio Segura
March 12, 2015

As we told you earlier today, actor Will Ferrell took the field as part of the Oakland A's in a game against the Seattle Mariners.

So why this picture in a Giants uniform? Tell you in a minute...

Will is doing the unthinkable today where he is scheduled to play 10 different positions (including DH) for 10 different teams using the hashtag #‎FerrellTakesTheField‬. It is part of a charity event to fight cancer.

He began the day with Oakland. Upon entering the stadium he quickly let the press know that he would not be doing any interviews, "I'm in beast mode", was his reason.

After a routine physical, Ferrell worked out with the team, took batting practice, mingled with the press and fans, and finally stepped onto the field as the Oakland A's shortstop. His stint with the team however, was short lived. Upon coming back into the dugout after one inning, Billy Beane broke the news that he had been traded for a comedic actor to be named later.
"I gave you blood, sweat, & tears for FOUR HOURS!", he yelled before suiting up in a Mariners uniform and walking across the field to their dugout.

Throughout the day, Ferrell will play all positions for the 
Athletics, Mariners, Cubs, Angels, Reds, Diamondbacks, White Sox, Dodgers, Padres, and also the San Francisco Giants (reason for the article Picture).

As news broke about what Ferrell is doing today, countless major sports teams around the US are inviting him to play for them by offering money to the cancer charity as incentive. Even our own San Jose Earthquakes and San Jose Giants got into the act. One thing's for sure, He's going to have a busy summer!
