Actor and comedian Will Ferrell a 'big hit' with Valley baseball fans

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

From the guy who brought you Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Elf came a sporting spectacle Thursday in the Valley.

Throughout the day, actor and comedian Will Ferrell played ball for 10 teams in five spring training baseball games around town.

The experience will be a part of an HBO special for his comedy website, Funny or Die. The show is set to air later this year.

The memorabilia from the day will be auctioned on mlb.com, and the proceeds will be given to Cancer for College and Stand Up to Cancer.

Ferrell's adventure wasn't limited to the baseball diamonds. He also took to the air in the Penguin Air News Chopper with 3TV's own Bruce Haffner.
