Michael Keaton confronts obnoxious heckler at Braves-Pirates game

Don’t mess with The Dark Knight’s favorite team.

A fan at the Pittsburgh Pirates-Atlanta Braves game at Turner Field was heckling Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen so loudly he actually got the attention of the Pirates center fielder who motioned to the heckler after he hit a double the eighth inning Friday night.

Being a good sport, McCutchen gave the fan his batting gloves after the inning, but the heckler did not get the forgiveness of everyone.

Pirates fan and Pittsburgh-area native Michael Keaton, who was having a good time after receiving a signed ball by Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett, walked over to the fan before the game was over and laced into him, pointing to the scoreboard to show the 10-8 score in favor of the Pirates, according to Yahoo News.

Entire police dept. disbanded after councilwoman and her son were arrested.

Although tensions were a little high, it seemed that everyone took the verbal exchange in good fun.

Besides, if you have to take a verbal thrashing — at a baseball game — who better to give it than the Batman?
