Presenting the Chicago Cubs’ Seventh-Inning Stretch, It’s Bill Murray and a Giant Teddy Bear

We’re all at a point in the coronavirus quarantine where screaming “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at a giant stuffed animal alone in your home might be the tiny, sweet bit of release we need, so go ahead, grab your 12-foot-tall flamingo or lizard or whatever, and join Bill Murray for the seventh-inning stretch. The actor and comedian provided the socially distanced musical break for the Chicago Cubs from an undisclosed, cabin-looking location during Friday’s seasoner opener, posted by Marquee Sports Center on Twitter. Spurred on to victory by the Illinois-born comedian’s song (and, presumably, some baseball-related motivations), the Cubs won against the Milwaukee Brewers 3 to 0, a shutout thanks to pitcher Kyle Hendricks and, presumably, these vocals.
