Bill Murray World Series Video: Watch “Take Me Out To The Ball Game!”
Bill Murray sang “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” at Wrigley Field on Friday for Game Three of the World Series with the Chicago Cubs. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, the Cubs are facing the Cleveland Indians’ in both teams’ first World Series appearance in decades. While the Chicago White Sox memorably won the World Series in 2005, their hometown rival the Cubs last won the World Series in 1908. That was more than a century ago.
And perhaps no celebrity is as excited about the Cubs’ comeback than Murray. The actor was born in Evanston, Illinois, like a number of other stars, and was raised in Wilmette, both northern suburbs of Chicago. Murray has made no secret of his Cubs fandom, and even took his love to the White House last week.
As Gossip Cop reported, Murray crashed the Briefing Room and amusingly held a press conference while decked out in Cubs garb. At the time, the team was still facing the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, prompting Murray to tout, “At home, our crowd, the weather. You get a little bit of autumn in Chicago. You don’t get that in Los Angeles. Trees just die, you know what I’m saying. In Illinois, they flourish.”
Chicago is definitely flourishing tonight, with thousands in “Wrigleyville” for the historic game. And those who scored tickets got to see first-hand as Murray stepped into the press box to lead the 7th inning stretch. Murray has actually sung “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” there a few times before, but this is pretty special circumstances.
In fact, earlier Friday, Murray’s golfing company shared on Facebook a childhood photo of Murray in Cubs gear, saying, “Before Game 3 gets underway; a little something for the fans — a never before shared pic of #BillMurray. All this six-year old wanted was a @Cubs’ jacket, a hat and #WorldSeries title. Got the first two. Let’s make that third wish come true, #Chicago. #ThisIsTheYear #GoCubsGo #FlyTheW.”
While it remains to be seen if Murray will finally get his wish, Gossip Cop has full video of his Game 3 appearance, which was actually sung Daffy Duck-style, below.
