JOLIET, Ill. (WLS) -- Actor Bill Murray is now a co-owner of the Joliet Slammers minor league baseball team.
The Joliet City Council unanimously approved the sale Tuesday evening. Murray is part of a group that's reached an agreement, in principal, to buy 75% of the team.
One of the other co-owners is Mike Veeck, the son of late White Sox owner Bill Veeck.
"Bill Murray and I have been partners for 32 years in numerous clubs," Veeck said during a Joliet committee meeting Monday. "Very much for two years, I have lusted after this club."
