Bill Murray Is Even Charming While Trying To Bribe Umpires

Ah, baseball season.

Baseball season is in full swing again, and it’s hard to pick out our favorite part. Is it the spring weather, the peanuts, the Cracker Jacks — or the joy of seeing Bill Murray goof around on a minor-league field?

WCIV sports reporter Daren Stoltzfus caught this chummy moment between the comedian and two umpires at a recent Charleston RiverDogs game in South Carolina. Murray, a co-owner of the team, was set to throw out the Opening Day pitch, but not before trying to sway the officials with some cold, hard cash.

The comedian was quite the staple while rooting for the Chicago Cubs at the 2016 World Series, and we’re hopeful he’ll make a trip to a major-league game soon.

Stoltzfus also shared a photo of Murray taking the time to shake each player’s hand before the game.

The team fell to the Lexington Legends 6–3 that night, but who cares? They’ve got Murray on their side.
