Lifelong Cubs fan Vince Vaughn did his best to energize Wrigley during the 7th-inning stretch

One of the most storied traditions in baseball is the singing of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field. Being asked to lead the Cubs fans in the song is a tremendous honor any day, but being asked to lead the song in the first World Series at Wrigley Field since 1945?! That's the thrilling position in which professional funny man Vince Vaughn found himself on Saturday night during Game 4.
So, what careful preparation did Vaughn undertake to get ready for the momentous occasion? According to Vaughn: "I don't have to prepare. I've got all the Chicagoans here at Wrigley singing with me. Raise your voices; try to bring some energy to the team."

Vaughn took to the mic with his hometown Cubbies trailing Cleveland, 7-1, and did his best to cheer on the home team with a rousing rendition. Under his leadership, Wrigley fans put aside the score for a moment and united to sing baseball's most famous song.
The Cubs ultimately lost, 7-2, and now find themselves down three games to one in the Series. Find out if the Cubs will be able stave off elimination in Game 5 on Sunday at 8 p.m.ET on FOX.
