I don’t know exactly why this is a thing, but I’m glad it is:

I mean, I get the connections here, but it’s a pretty spurious chain: minor league ballparks do crazy, awesome promotions … Ghostbusters was a beloved movie with an obvious theme … Bill Murray was in that movie … Bill Murray likes baseball … Bill Murray is from the Chicago area … Harry Caray was a broadcaster for the Chicago Cubs … the Cubs also play baseball …

But this is for a minor league team in Toledo, unaffiliated with the Cubs.

Whatever, man. Don’t think about it too much. Just enjoy. It’s actually a pretty good impression, relative to many of the dude-doing-an-impression-of-Will-Ferrell-doing-an-impression things out there.

(Bonus connection: both Murray’s and Caray’s names end in “ay”, but sound like “ee”!)

    Hahahahahahaha the poor production quality just makes it even more awesome. Bill Murray is just the best.

    Hey you know why that video is even weirder? Because it’s a promotion for Toledo, he’s wearing a Charleston Riverdogs jersey…

      Maybe it was a league-wide promotion?

    Hilarious, Darth…note how those young players keep moving further away from the Hall of Famer?
