The Ghostbusters star, 66, who grew up in neighboring Evanston, Illinois, was overjoyed to finally see his hometown team win the biggest title in baseball. He ran onto the field and tried to honk the horn of second baseman Ben Zobrist’s new car, which he received for being named MVP. He then made his way back to the locker room to celebrate with the team. He even filled in for a Fox Sports reporter, hilariously interviewing Cubs player Dexter Fowler and team president Theo Epstein.

Epstein had another surprise for Murray too when they doused him with champagne, exclaiming, “We just won the World Series!"

“I knew I was going to cry … I didn’t think it was because I was blind,” Murray later told the Chicago Tribune of his eyes stinging because of the bubbly.

“I’ve been imagining this for a long time. I didn’t think it would happen in Cleveland, but I thought it would happen,” the comedian continued. "I thought we’d have it in Wrigley Field. Just being in Wrigley Field and seeing all that excitement this week and the last few weeks is dreamy. It’s really pretty cool.”
