Ferrell’s spring stunt immortalized on baseball stats sites
Will Ferrell’s spring training stunt has sent him streaking straight into a baseball statistics website.
The star of “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” ″Elf” and several sports-related flicks played all nine positions and coached for 10 teams in five Arizona ballparks Thursday in a spring-training blitz chronicled for an HBO special.
Ferrell is listed 11 times under the March 12, 2015, transactions section of baseball-reference.com. Among the notable listings for John William Ferrell (Manimal) are: Traded to Chicago Cubs for a washing machine; Traded to Arizona Diamondbacks for a Churro Dog and D-Bat Dog; and claimed off waivers by Cincinnati Reds, Norm MacDonald released.
He’s listed as becoming arbitration eligible in 2018 and can file for free agency in 2021.
