Watch: Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder sings ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ at Wrigley

Monday October 31st, 2016

The Cubs brought in another celebrity to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch on Sunday, but this time it was someone with a little more experience. 

Bill Murray did the honors at Game 3 and Vince Vaughn followed him on Saturday. For Game 5, the Cubs handed the microphone to Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder. 

Vedder, a Chicago-area native, is a lifelong Cubs fan. He’s sang at the stretch several times and also been invited to throw out the first pitch. 

He dedicated the song to retiring catcher David Ross. At the time, the Cubs led 3–2.
