Big Hitter, The Lama

Bill Murray's history of impromtu sports fun

Bill Murray is a fan. He's a regular in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He's part owner of several minor league baseball teams. He's a die-hard Cubs supporter and enough of a basketball junkie that his son Luke turned out to be an assistant coach at Towson. Murray turns up at a lot of events, and when he does something unusual often happens. The highlights are graded on a scale of one to five Carl Spacklers.
