Will Ferrell, who has starred in films such as Elf, Old School, Anchorman, and Talladega Nights will make a scheduled appearance at the Dell Diamond for the Round Rock Express game on May 6th. The Express, a minor league baseball team playing out of a suburb of Austin, are scheduled to play the Nashville Sounds at 7:05pm. Ferrell will participate in a VIP reception, interact with fans, speak with the media, and partake in the Express radio broadcast.
Ferrell is in town to host the Will Powered Golf Classic, a golf event for the charity Cancer for College. The event will take place on May 7th at the Cimarron Hills Country Club in Georgetown. Cancer for College was started by cancer survivor Craig Pollard and provides college scholarships to cancer survivors. Ferrell and Pollard had met as students at the University of Southern California and were members of the same fraternity. Ferrell has supported and hosted several events for the organization since it was founded in 1993.
I really enjoyed his film Stranger Than Fiction, which isn't as well-known as his bigger comedies, but if you haven't seen it, check it out. At any rate, if you would like a chance to meet the man who made you laugh through Saturday Night Live and countless comedies, buy a ticket to the Round Rock Express versus the Nashville Sounds scheduled for Friday, May 6th! Can't say that I'll be there, but I'll be there in spirit. Think of me as an angel in the outfield.
