Bill Murray is co-owner of the Charleston RiverDogs and he tried to bribe the umpires before Opening Day
The major league season opened this past Sunday and Monday, but it wasnât until Thursday that the minor-league season got underway. The 2017 season is now a full go. Both the big leaguers and minor leaguers are playing.
Comedian Bill Murray co-owns the low Class-A Charleston RiverDogs (Yankees) -- his official title with the team is âDirector of Funâ -- and he was on hand for the clubâs first game Thursday night. Murray was on the field for the pregame ceremonies, and before leaving, he tried to slip the umpires some cash as a bribe. Check it out:
Love it. Bill Murrayâs awesome. Minor-league teams are always looking for fun promotions to get fans to the ballpark. Imagine having Bill Murray at your disposal? Thatâd be great.
