Bill Murray Gave a Random Chicago Cubs Fan an Extra Ticket to Game 6 of the World Series — Next to Him!

The legend of Bill Murray grows larger still. The Jungle Book actor, 66, gave a Chicago Cubs fan a ticket to Game 6 of the World Series in Cleveland on Tuesday, November 1. And it just so happens, the seat was right next to Murray himself.

Per, Karen Michel went to the Progressive Field box office before the game to see if she could score a single pass. “I was thinking maybe somebody didn’t use their ticket and they’ll want to resell it,” she told the site.

Her plan didn’t end up working out, but luckily for her, Murray was in earshot when her dreams were crushed. “He turns around and says, ‘Here, here’s a ticket,'” she recalled. “And he kind of shuttled me into the door. I thought it was just a ticket to get in. But it was a ticket to sit right here.”

The two were in good company. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and NHL Hall of Famer Chris Chelios also sat near them behind home plate. “I watched five games at home, and they’re showing Eddie Vedder, Chelios, whatever, and I’m like, ‘I wonder if I’ll see any of those people,'” Michel said. “Of course, now I’m here, and I see all kinds of people,” she told “I didn’t think it would be anything like this.”

The Ghostbusters star and Michel, who wore matching striped jerseys, got along just fine during the big game. “I asked, ‘When you went to the Cubs game, who did you go with?'” Michel said. “He said his brother and his father. I have all sisters, and me and my dad would go to the baseball games. We talked about stuff like that.”

The Cubs ended up beating the Indians 9-3 to force a Game 7 on Wednesday.

Murray has been to several Cubs games recently to cheer them on. Last week, he even sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Game 3 at Wrigley Field.
