Bill Murray Welcomes Cubs Fans Back to Full Ballpark With ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’

“This is what it feels like to be 100%!” he yells at Wrigley Stadium before leading the seventh-inning-stretch musical number.

Chicago native Bill Murray welcomed a full-capacity crowd back to Wrigley Stadium on Friday (June 11) by leading Cubs fans in a rousing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”

“This is what it feels like to be 100%!” Murray hollered to the shoulder-to-shoulder baseball fans during the seventh-inning stretch of Friday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals. “And we are going to be louder from right now until the last out in the top of the ninth inning, understood? Let’s scare the hell out of these Cardinals!”

The Hawaiian-shirt-clad actor and comedian then launched into a charmingly off-key (and fittingly offbeat) take on the baseball standard, swapping the words “home team” for an effusive “Cubbies.”
