He saw an opportunity and he took it. The organist for the Atlanta Braves played Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” when Blue Jays catcher Reese McGuire stepped up to the plate.
It’s because McGuire was caught publicly masturbating in his car outside a strip mall back in February and charged with ‘exposure of sexual organs’.
LMAO the Braves organist just played the song “beat it” while Reese McGuire walked up to the plate. The troll job of the century pic.twitter.com/Sfq1czkLeY

It’s subtle, but it’s there. The Braves’ organist confirmed it in a tweet that’s no longer available:
#Braves vs #BlueJays

“Big Shot” for Biggio
“Royals” for Lourdes
“Rawhide” for Rowdy
“Toccata and Fugue” for Vladimir

“Renegade” for Shaw
“High Hopes” for Panik
“Beat It” for McGuire
