Don't mess with Batman.

Michael Keaton may not play Batman anymore, but he still looks out for those in need. 

Yahoo Sports reports that the Birdman star attended Friday's baseball game at Turner Field in Atlanta between the rival Pittsburgh Pirates and Atlanta Braves. 

A Braves fan was loudly heckling Pirates star Andrew McCutchen during the game, with McCutchen even acknowledging the fan from the field after hitting an eighth-inning RBI double. The player later gave the heckler his batting gloves as an apparent peace offering. 

But Keaton, an ardent Pirates supporter, decided to give the rabble-rousing fan a piece of his mind. Keaton made his way over to the heckler and exchanged some words with him before pointing at the scoreboard. Keaton then left the stadium, and the Pirates won, 10-8.

According to Yahoo, the exchange manage to transpire without anyone getting overly upset.
