Starting next week, though, Murray is taking his baseball love affair on the road: He and his brother, Brian Doyle-Murray, will explore the Minor League ballparks of America as part of their new show, "Extra Innings". He's a minor-league team owner, a rabid Chicago Cubs fan who could be seen celebrating with the players in the clubhouse after they won the World Series in 2016.
The 10-episode unscripted comedy series debuts on Facebook Watch on Monday (Nov. 20) with new episodes - each running about 8 minutes - available weekly on Mondays.
"(The show) is a little something to fill a baseball fan's off-season hole in the heart", Bill says.

Meanwhile, Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the compensation committee's chairman, doesn't appear to be taking Jones' advice. Goodell has 18 months left on his current term and a lot to prove in the NFL's troubled 2017 landscape.
Doyle-Murray added that the project was "more fun than a bench-clearing brawl".
The first season of Extra Innings will consist of ten episodes. The theme song, "The Thing About Baseball", was written by Paul Shaffer and the Murray brothers and is performed by Bill Murray. "I thought that traveling with the Murray Brothers to games around America would be a fun, cool show and so did they", said Dub Cornett of Oso Studios, which is producing the series.
"It was like being on a vacation, in a weird way", said Cornett. The first episode of "Extra Innings" will premiere November 20 on Facebook Watch.
