In New Orleans, we can say we are somewhat used to Will Ferrell's antics.  He reigned over Bacchus in 2012, played pick up with college students at Tulane, and recently crashed a Pelican's game with buddy Mark Wahlberg for an upcoming movie. 

 For fans of Major League Baseball who went to go see their respective teams participate in Spring Training at Cactus League Parks in Arizona yesterday, they were treated to Will Ferrell's antics on the diamond.  Ferrell went to five games, using a helicopter to make it to each game on time, and played all 10 possible positions.  Here are some highlights of the afternoon compiled by Mike Oz at Yahoo! Sports. 

 The shenanigans were for more than just laughs though.  Ferrell was helping raise money for Stand up to Cancer and Cancer for College.  Well played Mr. Ferrell.
