Actor Ferrell pitches for Express

Suits up as 'Rojo,' entertains in Round Rock

Round Rock fell to Nashville, 3-1, on Thursday night, but it was the debut of the team's newest reliever that had fans buzzing.

Billy Ray "Rojo" Johnson, wearing No. 99 and adorned with glitzy necklaces, cans of beer and a bushy mustache, threw one pitch before being ejected and chased around the field by a Nashville batter. Well, sort of.

"Rojo," once the mustache fell off, appeared to be Will Ferrell, best known for his roles on "Saturday Night Live" and movies like "Anchorman," "Old School" and "Talladega Nights." He was in the area to promote The Will Powered Golf Classic on Friday at Cimmaron Hills Country Club, which benefits College for Cancer, an organization that provides scholarships to cancer survivors.

Ferrell entered the game in the sixth inning dressed as "Rojo," an American-born pitcher raised in Venezuela who, according to the Express, had recently walked early on a prison sentence for the "illegal importation of countless species of reptiles, including various types of rare snakes, lizards, iguanas, turtles and galliwasps."

The team also said Johnson was known for his temper. Sure enough, the right-hander threw behind the first batter he faced, was ejected, tossed his glove and sprayed beer at a Sounds player before pummeling him in the outfield in a tribute to Nolan Ryan.

Johnson also appeared to have taken a bag of beer cans with him to the mound.

"Mentally, I feel like I have the strength of 10 men, after that," Johnson, who ripped off his mustache during the on-field chase, told reporters in a postgame press conference.

"Nashville showed a lot of stuff tonight," he added. "They've got a lot of moxie."

The Express did not comment on the future of Johnson's career.

Lame, like pretty much everything he does.
