R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills talks the Great American Pastime with Baseball Digest:
I was once at a concert when the performer announced the score. Are you aware of the games while you perform? At World Series time?
Certainly, in ’95 we were because it was a long, long tour and my base technician is a Cleveland Indians fan, so we kept trying to upstage each other with hidden logos of the other team. For example, I would come on stage and there behind the P.A. speaker where only stage people could see it, there would be a big Cleveland Indians logo and then he would come up to his little work station and I had a big Braves flag hanging in there or something. So, that was pretty intense. The Braves beat the Indians, you know. Everybody was kind of watching that. I got everybody kind of psyched up.
