Actor made impromptu appearance at Wrigley Field
Bill Murray sang to fans at the World Series match between his beloved Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians on Friday night (October 28), offering up a rendition of ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’.
The World Series is baseball’s prestigious season decider, pitting the AL and NL champions against each other over a series of matches. The Indians eventually won the game at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, giving Cleveland a 2-1 series lead.
Taking to the microphone from a commentating box, Murray said to the crowd: “It’s the bottom of the 7th inning – the last chance to order beer – but we didn’t come here to drink beer, we came here to win this ball game”.
He then serenaded the crowd with his take on the unofficial baseball anthem. Watch below.
Murray recently gatecrashed the White House press room in a Cubs fleece and cap to discuss baseball. President Obama later explained of the incident: “I don’t usually allow that to happen… Most people come with a shirt and tie. It was Bill Murray, so I get no tie, but don’t rub it in with a Cubs jersey on.”
Obama went on to revealed that he and Murray had a game of golf on the carpet of the Oval Office. “He won repeatedly,” Obama admitted, poking fun at Donald Trump by saying that the game was “rigged”.
