Bill Murray Livens Up a Minor League Rain Delay

We’ve seen a lot of Bill Murray lately. We won’t complain. The acting legend is currently promoting his upcoming movie ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’

Murray’s most recent antic? The 61-year-old used his improvisational skills to entertain the crowd at a Class A minor league game between the Charleston RiverDogs and the Savannah Sand Gnats during a rain delay. Murray is a part owner of the RiverDogs, a New York Yankees affiliate.  So when the tarp started to collect water he indulged every overgrown child’s fantasy of using it as a giant Slip ‘n Slide. Actually, we’re pretty sure he would have pulled this stunt even if he wasn’t a part owner.

After completing the head-first slide into home, Murray returned to the dugout, where he collected high fives from the RiverDogs and cheers from the remaining crowd.

Earlier this baseball season, Murray ran the bases before a Chicago Cubs games and looked like he just might drop of a heart attack at any moment. His health didn’t seem to be in as immediate jeopardy this time around, but such gyrations at his age could lead to serious injury.
