Pearl Jam’s own Eddie Vedder amped up the crowd at Wrigley Field with a killer performance of ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ as the Chicago Cubs played to take back the 2016 World Series from the Cleveland Indians. Click inside to watch!
Eddie Vedder, 52, showed his hometown pride at Game 5 of the World Series in which the Chicago Cubs are up against the Cleveland Indians. It was the last game at Wrigley Field, and as the Pearl Jam singer pointed out also the first ever October 30 game in the stadium. Wow!
The Illinois native dedicated his performance of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” to David Ross, who is retiring after this season. “There’s one guy in particular I want to sing my a-s for,” Eddie announced, to which the crowd cheered wildly. “He’s #3, he’s behind the plate, he may retire but he will never quit. Mr. David Ross, I would like to belt this one out for you! It’s his last game at Wrigley, let’s sing it for him. Lets sing it with Harry!”
Eddie then kicked off the song, to which the crowd sang along to every word. For a moment Eddie even stopped singing into the mic so that he could hear the crowd, and in between shots of excited fans we also saw that Bill Murray was there singing along, too!
