Comedian Bill Murray gave baseball fans at fabled Wrigley Field stadium a laugh on Thursday (05Apr12) after running on to the field and sliding into home plate before his beloved Chicago Cubs took on the Washington Nationals.
The Groundhog Day star was invited to honour his favourite team by throwing out the first pitch of the season, but the veteran funnyman decided to show off his sports skills by skidding into home and striking a pose before delivering the ceremonial pitch.
But Murray's high jinks weren't enough to help his team secure a win - the Nationals beat the Cubs 2-1.
