Jim Carrey cheers up high school baseball team after big loss

July 22, 2013

Of all the things the Pella (Ia.) High baseball team expected to find after their final loss of the 2013 season, Jim Carrey on their bus wasn't one of them.

Incredibly, that’s precisely what they got after the famous actor bumped into the team at a local Burger King and hopped on board the team bus to take a candid photo and help cheer up Pella playersfollowing a dispiriting loss.

It’s uncertain precisely what Carrey was doing in rural Iowa, though the Des Moines Register surmised that he was probably there to study transcendental meditation at the Maharishi University of Management. The program has previously been attended by the likes of Oprah and Moby, so there’s every reason to believe that might have been Carrey’s motivation.

No matter what the actor learned about remaining centered at Mahirishi, that went out the window when he got a chance to clown around with a big captive group of teenagers. In a photo posted to Twitter, Carey quickly held up seven fingers next to a lone digit from a Pella player, commemorating Pella’s 7-1 loss to Fairfield (Ia.) High earlier in the day.

While everyone was surprised to see Carrey pop up on their doorsteps, no one was more stunned than Pella coach Jesse Jablonski, who had admonished his players from bothering Carrey when a few had noticed him in the back of the quick serve restaurant where the team was getting post game ice cream.

As it turns out, he didn’t have to warn them about giving Carrey extra space. Carrey didn’t want any. All he wanted was to make some kids reeling from an unfortunate loss a little bit happier.

"I kind of heard some whispers from a few of my guys in the background," Jablonski told the Register. "I didn’t really think it would be (Carrey) at first. What would he be doing in Fairfield, Iowa?

"Obviously, after [the photo] happened, the loss and the game were the last things on their minds."
