Ferrell Takes the Field Trailer: Will Ferrell Joins the Major Leagues, for America    

One day in March during spring training, Will Ferrell dropped in on 10 different major league baseball teams, and played every position on the field. As we can now see in the full trailer for the HBO special about this historic achievement, Ferrell Takes the Field (premiering Sept. 12), Ferrell was a valuable asset to each team he temporarily joined: He pitched, he bunted, he held signs praising players’ good looks, and he sported the most regal nacho beard mankind has ever seen.

“They say nothing’s more American than grabbing a hot dog, heading to the ballpark, and watching nine guys from the Dominican Republic make magic on the field,” Ferrell says. “But you know what? Today I learned they are wrong. Make that eight Dominicans, and one guy from Irvine, California.” God bless America.
