Bill Murray Tears Tickets at St. Paul Saints Independent League Baseball Game, Catches First Pitch: Watch!

Bill Murray has quite the back-up plan for his career. The celebrated movie star, 63, tried his hand at working an independent league baseball stadium on Thursday, Aug. 28, when he surprised fans by tearing tickets at the St. Paul Saints game. 

Murray dropped in on the game at St. Paul's Midway Stadium, in recognition of the team's last game at the venue before the players move to a new stadium in 2015. 

Wearing a blue-and-white Hawaiian print shirt, blue patterned shorts, and a white bucket hat, The Grand Budapest Hotel star ever-so-casually collected tickets from fans who were entering the stadium. 

"Remember that one time Bill Murray was at our last game at Midway," the St. Paul Saints tweeted on Thursday. "You better believe we know how to throw a party."

Murray, who is a partial owner of the team and officially listed as the Saints' Team Psychologist, then took the field to catch the first pitch of the game. Crouching behind home plate, the actor received the toss from St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, and gave an impressive throw up to the stands. 

The surprises for the game didn't stop there, however, as Murray was joined by his former Saturday Night Live costar, and current Minnesota Senator, Al Franken
