PEORIA, Ariz. – Will Ferrell stormed through his Arizona spring training odyssey and emerged — well — just like Will Ferrell.
“Ruth, Musial, Mantle, Will Ferrell,” he said, addressing the crowd at his final stop Thursday night. “Who would have thought that one day those names would be synonymous? Show of hands — scratch that, never mind.”…
As he walked off the field, Ferrell waved his cap and gave a security guard a high five.
“They say there’s nothing more American than grabbing a hot dog, heading to the ballpark, and watching nine guys from the Dominican Republic,” he said. “… But you know what, today I learned that was wrong. They had eight Dominicans, and one guy from Irvine, California.”
