Director of Fun and part-owner of the New York Yankees affiliates Charleston Riverdogs, Bill Murray, was elected to the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame this past weekend. The ceremony was held in Charleston, S.C. as part of the festivities for the SAL All-Star game. Naturally, Murray delivered some expected comedic relief, but with Yankees GM Brian Cashman and a collection of the All-Stars on hand for the speech, Murray delivered some words of wisdom for the young men. Murray was extremely complimentary of the level of talent currently competing in the league and voiced how proud he was to be a part of it.
As a Charleston resident, it’s always entertaining to catch Bill Murray, who is frequently in attendance at the games. It’s also been pretty awesome to be able to have the opportunity to speak with the comedy legend and take a few pictures. He’s a great ambassador for minor league baseball and the city of Charleston. Congrats to Bill Murray on this honor and make sure you keep your eye out for several Charleston Riverdogs like Tyler Austin and Dante Bichette Jr. as we fully expect them to be competing at the major league level soon.
