Actor Bill Murray celebrates full house at Wrigley Field with the Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs superfan Bill Murray, 70, took center stage at Wrigley Field on Friday to lead the crowd in song.

The “Caddyshack” actor was in the announcer’s booth wearing a buttoned-up blue shirt with a matching Cubs cap, and it wasn’t long until Murray pumped up the full house of 35,112 fans who were there to watch the Cubs play the St. Louis Cardinals..

“This is what it feels like to be 100%,” he exclaimed, as he held up the microphone and got huge roars from the crowd.

“Let’s scare the hell out of these Cardinals, let’s scare them,” he said seconds before the opening of ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ midway through the seventh inning — a decades-long tradition for the team since the 70s.

The crowd cheered and sang along with Murray as he held the last note of the song for as long as he could, in a way only Bill Murray can pull off.

In the end, the Cubs did not disappoint their home crowd as they capped off their glorious afternoon with an 8-5 win over the Cardinals.
