Mr. Deejay, Spin Your Heels
During a baseball game featuring the Daytona Cubs (the single-A club of the Chicago Cubs), the park deejay was ejected by an umpire. It seems after an questionable call, Dye played the classic children's tune, "Three Blind Mice." According to milb.com: "Umpire Mario Seneca '… pointed to Dye in the press box and shouted, 'You're done!' Ditto for the Cubs' public-address announcer. 'Turn the sound off for the rest of the night,' Seneca could be heard yelling during the Cubs' broadcast."
