Don’t worry, Andrew McCutchen. Batman has your back.
The Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder was the target of a heckler during the Buccos’ game against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field on Friday, but luckily, he had the support of a Pirates fan seated near the dugout. And that Pirates fan just happened to be actor Michael Keaton.
Cutch had the situation under control for the most part and even acknowledged the troublesome fan when he smacked an RBI double to left field in the top of the eighth inning. McCutchen also gave the Braves fan his batting gloves as a thank you for the motivation.

But Keaton still wasn’t going to stand for his guy being heckled, so he apparently walked over and exchanged some words with the Atlanta fan.

When all was said and done and the Pirates took home the 10-8 win, Keaton shut up the heckler with one simple gesture by pointing to the scoreboard.

The lesson here? Never pick a fight when Batman is around.
