Bill Murray threw fans his own type of curveball at Chicago's Wrigley Field during the Cubs' first game of the regular MLB season on Thursday.

The 61-year-old "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day" actor, who is known for his sense of humor, decided to run the bases and slide into home plate before delivering a scheduled ceremonial first pitch to open his favorite team's game against the Washington Nationals.

David Letterman recently celebrated his 30th anniversary of his job as a late-night television host by featuring on his CBS series "The Late Show" shock jock Howard Stern and "Groundhog Day" actor Bill Murray, who almost started a fire at the CBS studio.

On Tuesday's episode, the 61-year-old actor, known for his eccentric humor, brought Letterman a chocolate-frosted cupcake with 30 candles. He lit them with an electronic lighter and matches. Murray dropped several sticks, still attached to the packet, on the floor and uttered a muted expletive before he kicked it and put out the flames. Letterman, 64, then blew out the candles.
