Bill Murray will host a new Facebook show called “Extra Innings” about minor league baseball to help fill an off-season void in fans' hearts. 

The concept may appeal to avid baseball fans, Engadget reported, as the unscripted show sees Murray team up with his brother, Brian Doyle-Murray, and follows the pair around as they crash ball parks across America, engaging with locals and heckling some of the players.

Judging by footage previewing “Extra Innings,” viewers can expect quite a few laughs as the brothers, who are both executive producers, embark upon their journey to visit the St. Paul Saints and Charleston RiverDogs as well as Martha's Vineyard Sharks and the Kansas City T-Bones.

According to Engadget, they will also visit children at the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

The series, which is produced by Oso, will be comprised of 10 weekly episodes and is set to debut on Nov. 20, Deadline noted.

Doyle-Murray described the show as “a little something to fill a baseball fan’s off-season hole in the heart,” Variety reported.

Doyle-Murray added that the project was “more fun than a bench-clearing brawl. And like a baseball bench-clearing brawl, no one got hurt!”

Oso founder Dub Cornett explained that the concept for the show arose from a chance meeting between himself and Brian Doyle-Murray.

“I thought that traveling with the Murray Brothers to games around America would be a fun, cool show and so did they. It’s simple as that,” said Cornett, per Variety.

“It was like being on a vacation, in a weird way,” he added. “We would watch baseball sometimes and go find pie or milkshakes other times.”
