Bryan Cranston has entertained millions as an actor, and now he’s bringing his talent to baseball diamond.
On Saturday night, Cranston stole the show as he played in the MLB Celebrity All-Star Softball Game alongside fellow celebs like JoJo Siwa, Academy Award winner JK Simmons, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” pal Guillermo Rodriguez and more.
Cranston proved to excel at his antics during the game, which took place at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
According to Fox News, things got off to a rough start during a pre-game batting practice session when Cranston was hit in the chest by a ball thrown by “In the Heights” actor Anthony Ramos and fell to his knees.

In video of the incident, a voice can be heard asking Cranston if he would like a shot of tequila. “Possibly, yes,” Cranston replies.

“There will definitely be bruises,” Cranston later said of his injury. “I could be more of a cheerleader in this game.”
In the meantime, page six reports that Cranston was struck by a pitch that appeared to be inside and took offense when the referee called.
“He was inside,” Cranston roared, hurling dirt at Ump. “You’re stealing the game from us!”

Simmons stepped between Cranston and the referee to de-escalate the confrontation.
Cranston left the game and then returned with a bucket of gum, which he spilled at the referee, who then threw him out of the game.
Twitter shared highlights from Cranston throughout the game.
