Bill Murray - Bill Murray Checks Tickets At Minor League Baseball Game

Funnyman Bill Murray surprised attendees at a minor-league baseball game in Minnesota on Thursday night (28Aug14) by greeting fans at the entrance as he helped to check tickets.

The Ghostbusters star is a co-owner of the St. Paul Saints and he decided to get back to basics by joining ground staff to take tickets at the Midway Stadium turnstiles for the team's last home game of the season.

The actor, who helped to revive the local kids' team in 1993, further delighted devotees by agreeing to pose for pictures while on the job.

Once inside the venue, he stepped up to the field to show off his sporting skills and even caught the ceremonial first pitch, thrown by Mayor of St. Paul, Chris Coleman.

Murray is no stranger to sporting events - the huge Chicago Cubs fan is a regular at the Major League Baseball team's home games in his native Illinois. He is also a part owner of several other minor league baseball teams, including New York Yankees feeder organisation the Charleston RiverDogs.
