Will Ferrell took to the mound last night for Triple-A Round Rock, an Astros affiliate, and was ejected after throwing one pitch against Nashville.

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.

Yes, this really happened. I wrote a story about it and put together a photo gallery from the night, give it a look.

“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.
