If the Cubs don’t win it’s a shame! Chicago native and comedic genius, Bill Murray, wowed fans with his rendition of ‘Take Me Out To The Ball Game,’ during game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley Field on Oct. 28th. Keep reading for all the details of this hilarious moment in sports history as he sang the classic song as Daffy Duck.
The Indians were up 1-0 on the Cubs and the crowd at Wrigley Field really needed a pick me up in the 7th inning stretch. Leave it to Bill Murray, 66, to provide it, revving up the crowd by reminding them it was last call for buying beer. He then instructed the fans that they needed to sing Take Me Out To The Ball Game, “Like our greatest entertainer Daffy Duck.” Hah! He wasn’t kidding as he burst into the song with the cartoon character’s classic wet lisp, giving some much needed levity to the Wrigley field audience.
1945 was the last time the Chicago Cubs hosted a World Series and it has been over a hundred years since the Cubbies have won a championship. The Saturday Night Live alum and star of classic movies like Ghostbusters and Caddyshack, is perhaps the funniest Chicago Cubs fan alive today and was the perfect choice for the traditional honor practiced at every MLB game.

Bill really is a true Cubs fanatic. He has been a staple at Wrigley for years and especially during the historic 2016 season. When the Cubs won 103 games during the season, Bill was a regular in the seats at The Friendly Confines in Chicago. During the NLDS, when the Cubs were battling the San Francisco Giants, Bill could be seen leaping with joy anytime Cubs catcher David Ross hit a homerun or whenever reliever Aroldis Chapman threw 103 MPH. There are few fans like him and no better choice than Bill.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Bill singing Take Me Out To The Ball Game at the first World Series game at Wrigley in over 70 years? Do you think he will help the Cubs go on to win the Championship?
