The only thing better than watching Will Ferrell recap his spring training experience is watching Will Ferrell recap his spring training experience while dressed in a full leprechaun outfit.

The actor went on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Tuesday to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and more importantly, to break down his MLB debut that occurred less than a week ago. Ferrell was a highlight machine on the diamond, suiting up for 10 teams in five different Cactus League games and playing all 10 positions to help raise awareness for Stand Up to Cancer and Cancer for College in hilarious fashion.

It wasn’t all fun and games for Ferrell, though, as he revealed that there were certain aspects of the game that scared the living daylights out of him.

“There were moments that were terrifying, I’m not going to lie to you,” Ferrell said. “Trying to hit a 90 mph fastball — it’s next to impossible.”

He also didn’t make many friends on the Arizona Diamondbacks, as he pinpointed his time in left field for them as his low point of the entire experience.

“Playing left field for the Diamondbacks: I entered the game, they were down 9-1. When I left, we were losing 12-1, after four consecutive balls were hit to me out in the outfield.”

It might not have been a coincidence, but he added running over to the other team’s dugout — the Cincinnati Reds — made everything much, much better, adding it was a heck of a lot more fun on the other side.

Ferrell’s day was nothing short of epic, but surprisingly enough, he’s still waiting for some general managers to get a hold of him.

“Well, I’m still hoping for a call, Dave,” Ferrell said. “I feel like I turned some heads.”

You really did, Will, you really did.
