Actor Bill Murray has been inducted into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame in recognition of his work as co-owner of the Charleston RiverDogs, a minor league baseball side.
Murray, who has part-owned the RiverDogs since 1989 and whose official title is "Director of Fun", was honoured in a luncheon prior to the league's annual all-star game in South Carolina.
The 61-year-old delivered an impromptu speech in front of guests including New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, joking that he had no idea why he had been adjudged worthy of inclusion.
"I don't understand why I'm being inducted into the hall of fame. I'm not going to say no," he said.
"No one's ever asked me to be in a hall of fame before. This is a first so I'm going all the way with it."
Murray, an avid baseball fan, owns stakes in four minor league sides and is involved in community work in Charleston, where he has lived for many years.
