The Chicago Cubs have fired a DJ who played The Prodigys Smack My Bitch Up after reliever Aroldis Chapman left the mound against the St Louis Cardinals on Sunday.

Chapman served a 29-game suspension to begin the season under Major League Baseballs new domestic violence policy.

We apologize for the irresponsible music selection during our game last night, the Cubs president of baseball operations, Crane Kenney, said in a statement.
