Billy Ray 'Rojo' Johnson Delights Dell Crowd

Looks suspiciously like Will Ferrell

Venezuelan pitcher Billy Ray "Rojo" Johnson made his pro baseball debut for the Express last night and was ejected after throwing just one pitch. Rojo looked suspiciously like comedian Will Ferrell who was in attendance at the game in support of the Cancer for College golf tourney being held Monday, May 10. Check out the photo gallery for more.
