Comedian Will Ferrell will take the field in Arizona today, and another, and another. He'll play every position on the field as he visits ten teams at five Cactus League ballparks in a feat for a new HBO special and dedicated to the fight against cancer.

His schedule, according to MLB.com (In Arizona/Pacific time):

  • 12:05 p.m.: Seattle Mariners at Oakland Athletics (HoHoKam Stadium)
  • 1:10 p.m.: Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (Tempe Diablo Stadium)
  • 2:10 p.m.: Cincinnati Reds at Arizona Diamondbacks (Salt River Fields at Talking Stick)
  • 4:05 p.m.: San Francisco Giants at Chicago White Sox (Camelback Ranch)
  • 6:15 p.m.: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres (Peoria Stadium)

Memorabilia from Ferrell's journey will be auctioned by the MLB, with proceeds being donated to Cancer for College and Stand Up To Cancer.
