The first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1985 featured a soaring rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” from the world’s funniest Cub fan—Bill Murray.
For the next game, the honors fell to Vince Vaughn. And for Sunday night’s game, the final at Wrigley this season, the seventh inning stretch was belted out by a guy who actually sings for a living.
Eddie Vedder took the mic with the Cubs leading the middle of the seventh last night and after mistakenly referring to the series as the first at Wrigley in “history,” the Pearl Jam frontman did a pretty good job of warbling his way through “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
Props to the Cubs for audio of Harry Caray counting down the start of the song. Somewhere, Will Ferrell is smiling.
Two innings after Vedder implored the Cubs to “take this show to Cleveland,” they recorded the final out of game five and did just that. With a night off tonight, the series will return to Progressive Field on Tuesday, where Cubs righty Jake Arrieta will try to shut the Indians down just like he did in game two.
