Will Ferrell did something that hasn’t been done in a long time Thursday: He generated interest in spring training baseball.

The world-famous actor took to the diamond with the hopes of playing all nine positions across five different Cactus League games, all in order to help raise awareness for Stand Up to Cancer and Cancer for College.

The results seemed to be pretty successful, and of course, hilarious. Ferrell delighted fans across Arizona not only with his sense of humor but also with his play. For a 47-year-old with no professional baseball experience, the actor kind of, sort of held his own.
