MESA, Ariz. — Telling everyone “I’m a five-tool guy,” Will Ferrell was off on his barnstorming tour Thursday through five Arizona spring training games, including one with the Mariners.

Wearing No. 19, first for Oakland and then for visiting Seattle, the star of “Anchorman, The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” ”Elf” and many other movies played shortstop for the Athletics in the top of the first inning, then second base for the Mariners in the top of the second.

He was enthusiastic, but alas, no ball was hit to him.

As he left, he gave a fan in an elf costume a long hug, then was off with a police escort, lights flashing, to a waiting helicopter and a flight to stop No. 2 in Tempe.

The comedian planned to play for 10 teams at five spring training games, playing every position along the way.
