Watch Bill Murray's minor league team drench him with champagne

BY foxsports • June 15, 2016

One of the perks of playing for a Bill Murray part-owned team is getting to hang out with the acting legend who, by numerous accounts, is one of the most down-to-earth stars there is.

Murray has had a stake in a number of minor league teams over the years and is currently a part owner of the Single-A Charleston RiverDogs, a New York Yankees Class-A Affiliate. His official team title: Director of Fun.

Case in point, watch him get doused with champage by jubilant players on Tuesday night after the team clinched a playoffs berth after clinching the South Atlantic League's first half title:

For the volume impaired, Murray's delightful line is: "Tastes like victory."

We'll be rooting for the RiverDogs because that just may result in an on-field celebration where the Director of Fun gets launched out of a cannon.
