Usually the World Series gives participating cities a chance to show off their homegrown musical talent to sing the National Anthem. In the case of the Chicago Cubs, they did just that in a way, with their regular anthem singer Wayne Messmer holding court once more.
But Cubs fans at Wrigley Field have their own even more peculiar tradition, thanks to the late legendary broadcaster Harry Caray, leading the crowd in the 7th inning stretch singalong, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
For the first Cubs home games in a World Series since 1945, the team asked longtime fans and comedians Bill Murray and Vince Vaughn to do the honors in Game 3 and Game 4, respectively.
Murray chose to sing his version in the style of Daffy Duck. Because, being Bill Murray is daffy.
And here’s Vaughn being money.
For last night’s Game 5, the team turned to Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder!
