Cubs apologize for song choice as Chapman exits

Regardless of who was on the mound, a Major League Baseball game doesn't seem like an appropriate place to play a song that continuously repeats the lyrics "Smack My Bitch Up". That's because an employee chose the wrong music to play following a relief appearance from Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning of the game.

After all, he did miss the first 29 games of this season while serving a suspension for his role in a domestic violence situation.

The Chicago Cubs have fired a DJ associated with the playing of an inappropriate song at at even more inappropriate time Sunday night, but what led up to the monumental mishap remains a mystery Monday afternoon.

The music selection was troubling with Chapman's recent suspension in October for a domestic violence incident where he choked his girlfriend and fired eight gunshots according to reports.

The Cubs have welcomed Chapman become he is one of the most dominant closers in baseball.

The latest incident in the Cubs' Aroldis Chapman story had nothing to do with the pitcher, other than the fact that he had just left the mound.

Kenney later wrote that the person responsible for the music pick has been terminated and that the Cubs will have stronger vetting of music played during games. "Because the chance that this was a random occurrence- that song for that player- is zero". It's also hard to imagine the Cubs would have that song in their rotation.
