The Atlanta Braves are currently playing the Miami Marlins in a four game series. Thursday was the first game in the series and as Hurricane Irma heads towards Florida in what is supposed to be the most powerful hurricane in recorded history, the Braves may not have thought through the song they chose to play between innings.
Fans and players could hear the song “Rock You Like A Hurricane” by the Scorpions playing over the PA system and the Twitter response showed what the fans were thinking when the song was playing.
