Spring training games don’t mean a whole lot and here’s the latest proof of that:

That’s comedic actor Will Ferrell, of course, and that meant there was a chance he could take the field against or for the Royals, who play Cleveland in Goodyear.

But I heard that Ferrell will play in five games, and the Royals-Indians game is not one of them.

SBNation reported Ferrell is expected to appear in the Athletics-Mariners and Dodgers-Padres games.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Ferrell is doing his spring fling to raise cancer awareness. The Tribune also noted that the White Sox changed their game time Thursday in order to accommodate Ferrell’s appearance.
