Things got a bit crazy Friday night at Turner Field in Atlanta.
Not only did the Pirates come away with an exciting 10-8 victory, but Actor Micael Keaton also stepped up to the plate – to shut down a heckler who was trash talking Andrew McCutchen all night long.
According to Yahoo News, Keaton was seated near the Pirates dugout and was in good spirits, especially after receiving this autographed ball from Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett.
Apparently, not far away was a Braves fan who was giving McCutchen the gears all game long. The heckling was even to the point that McCutchen actually acknowledged the fan after hitting an RBI double in the eighth inning.

A classy guy all the way, McCutchen tossed the fan his batting gloves following the inning.
As the story goes, things got a little more vibrant when the actor went over and began helckling the heckler!
According to Yahoo, he even did the sports fans equivalent of a mic drop by pointing at the scoreboard before taking his leave for the evening.
Though things seemed tense at time, cooler heads prevailed and it seems everybody took the exchanges in stride and remained mostly calm.
