Bill Murray Owns a Minor League Baseball Team and Partied With Them After They Made the Playoffs
By Alex Ungerman
Popping champagne with Bill Murray is a home run!
The Zombieland star apparently co-owns the Charleston RiverDogs minor league baseball team -- Single-A affiliate of the New York Yankees -- which is A. awesome, but B. even better because the RiverDogs just made the playoffs for the first time in 11 years, meaning Murray had to turn up and celebrate with his players.
"Tastes like victory," said the 65-year-old actor to a freshly popped bottle of bubbly, in a video shared on the team's Twitter.
Murray loves to have a good time, and seems to be doing a lot of it lately as the Ghostbusters all-female reboot gets set to premiere on July 15. The actor couldn't stop raving about the film on a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance, where he commended the strength of the leads, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig.
"I knew these girls were funny," Murray said. "They just, there is no quit in these girls. This is a tough movie to pull off because it's a big concept -- there's a lot on the plate, there's a lot of expectation."
