Ferrell, Galifianakis savor first pitches at Wrigley

CHICAGO -- Uncommon pregame festivities are inevitable when Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis throw out the first pitch and announce the lineups at a Cubs game.

Ferrell and Galifianakis changed out of their suits and into Cubs uniforms Wednesday before taking the mound. After Galifianakis, donning a yellow visor and sunglasses, threw his pitch to Ryan Dempster, a deep dish pizza was delivered to the mound for Ferrell, who threw a hard enough rope to Dempster to draw applause from the entertained crowd at Wrigley Field.

Galifianakis and Ferrell, who portrayed famed Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray for multiple sketches on Saturday Night Live, proceeded to read their own renditions of the Cubs lineup on the field.

"I'm sure I'll mess something up," Galifianakis joked before.

It's hard to tell if anything was butchered.

"Batting fifth, and playing right field, he loves playing the banjo and doing tricks with his pet dog, Chachee, No. 6, Bryan LaHair," Ferrell said.

"Batting sixth, and playing catcher, in his spare time he's an accountant at a styrofoam cooling company, No. 18, Geovany Soto," Galifianakis said.

The comedic duo, who will star in the upcoming movie, "The Campaign," scheduled to open Aug. 10, had fun with the entire lineup.

"It was great," Ferrell said. "I was a little nervous."
