Given the November weather and the general state of affairs, the nation has never more needed an online series of Bill Murray visits to minor league baseball stadiums.
We’re in luck. It starts on Facebook next Monday. Here’s a trailer.
Join Bill Murray and Brian Doyle-Murray starting 11/20 as they wander the Minor League ballparks of America, mingle with the locals, heckle a few players, and maybe even catch a bit of the game. Nobody does nothing better than these two.

Murray, part-owner of the St. Paul Saints, toured the ballparks over three months last summer with his brother, Brian Doyle-Murray.
There are 10 episodes in the series.
Murray said it’s intended to fill “a little something to fill a baseball fan’s off-season hole in the heart.”
“It was like being on a vacation, in a weird way,” producer Dub Cornett tells Variety. “We would watch baseball sometimes and go find pie or milkshakes other times.”
