When Bill Murray crashes a kickball game in New York City, we all win

I’m convinced that Bill Murray has cloned himself — he appears in far too many places for there to be only one of him. He also possesses the energy of a much younger man and is very into sports — he may be the only actor on PEDs.

Recently Marina Cockenberg of posted a photo of Murray posing with a kickball team on her personal Tumblr. Apparently Murray crashed the game and played for about 10 minutes. Her friend Chris DiLella plays on the team, and gave this account to Entertainment Weekly:

Around 2 p.m., DiLella and his fellow kickballers were playing a game in a field on New York City’s Roosevelt Island. Murray “popped out of nowhere” and began interacting with the players. “He was bouncing the ball… ran over to second base. Played for a bit… Gave us all high-fives and let us pose with him in the picture,” DiLella explained over email. After the above photo was shot, Murray went over to one of the players’ moms — who was behind the camera — and “picked her up in his arms.” Soon after posing for a second shot, Murray left with “three young boys” — DiLella assumes they were Murray’s sons. Could be; Murray’s youngest kids, all boys, are 17, 15, and 11 years old.

Roosevelt Island is one of the locations on Murray’s upcoming film in which he plays Franklin D. Roosevelt: Hyde Park on Hudson.

    Next week he’ll be popping in at Rucker Park to channel his inner Space Jam and show those guys how to really play ball. Just remember, he doesn’t play defense.
