No one will ever believe you -- even if you're Bob Dylan? Unlike numerous urban myths regarding Bill Murray's unexpected whereabouts, it's safe to say that the actor was at Midway Stadium in St. Paul on August 29, 1997. Even without members of the Wu-Tang Clan involved, the outcome was still surreal.
Murray is part-owner and "team psychologist" for the St. Paul Saints minor league baseball squad, and rolls through the Twin Cities every so often. Recently, he was on hand during the Saints' "Last Train to Midway" in late August to take tickets and catch the game's first pitch from St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman.
Back in '97, Murray visited for Dylan's first of three historic concerts at Energy Park -- shows also took place in 2005 and 2013 -- and added some comic relief to what was already a magical evening.
