    Michael Keaton shut down an Atlanta Braves fan and heckler at the MLB team's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Turner Field in Atlanta on Friday.

    The 63-year-old actor, a Pennsylvania native and longtime Pirates fan, had watched the man heckle center fielder Andrew McCutchen and then confronted him, Pittsburgh's WPXI-TV and Yahoo! Sports reported. Keaton was photographed looking at the heckler and pointing at the scoreboard. The Pirates beat the Braves, 10-8. 

    The Braves did, however, beat the Pirates the following day, with a score of 5-4.
