Will Ferrell Came Into A Minor League Baseball Game

On Friday, Will Ferrell came into a minor league baseball game near Austin, Texas, as a relief pitcher named “Rojo Johnson.” The announcer said he was a Venezuelan phenom who’d just spent time in jail for stealing lizards. Ferrell got to the mound and immediately opened a beer. Then he got ejected after his first pitch and got into a mock fight with a player on the opposing team. The umpires, announcers, and both teams were in on it. And the batter he got into a “fight” with wasn’t on the other team’s official roster.
