Was Bill Murray's 7th Inning Stretch The Most Legendary In Wrigley History?

CHICAGO — The first World Series game at Wrigley Field in 71 years might also have had the legendary stadium's most memorable Seventh Inning Stretch rendition ever, when Bill Murray belted it out Friday night as all of Chicago and much of the world watched.

"It's the bottom of the seventh inning, last chance to order a beer," Murray yelled before singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in his best Daffy Duck voice for the Stretch.

The rendition immediately evoked memories of other epic celebrity performances of the song at Wrigley, which have been performed since the death of Harry Caray in 1998.

Here are some other Seventh Inning Stretch showings that brought the house down, for various reasons.

Jeff Gordon had perhaps the most embarrassing moment ever when he called the iconic field, "Wrigley Stadium" and was promptly booed.

Mike Ditka sprinted up to the press box, then belted out an ultra-quick rendition.

Not to be outdone was Ditka with actor Will Ferrell, who played Harry Caray numerous times during his time on 'Saturday Night Live.'

Years later, people still have no clue what Ozzy Osbourne was saying here.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder had a classic take here.

Scottie Pippen messed up several times recently.

Who can forget Mr. T?

And this was the first seventh inning at Wrigley after the death of Harry Caray.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
