Will Ferrell Revives Harry Caray Impression in Honor of Cubs’ World Series Berth

It's the team's first World Series in 71 years

The Chicago Cubs are headed to the World Series for the first time in 71 years, and although legendary announcer Harry Caray isn’t around to see his team compete for the championship, his spirit lives on through Will Ferrell.

The 49-year-old actor brought back his Saturday Night Live impression of the eccentric broadcaster — who passed away in 1998 — during Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, making a surprise appearance to chat about baseball, the afterlife and Donald Trump with the show’s host. “Donny Trump, oh boy. I knew him when he would sneak into the press box and throw Kennedy half-dollar coins at the Dominican players,” Ferrell said. “Trump’s got those little tiny mitts. He looked like he was flinging silver dinner platters with those things.”

He even led the audience in one of Caray’s famed renditions of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
