The Atlanta Braves did a good thing Thursday.

The Miami Marlins tweeted a thank you to the Braves.

The Braves begin a four-game series with the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.

Braves official apologized, said "Rock You Like A Hurricane" is on home playlist, should have been pulled.

"The Atlanta Braves are extending an invitation to all Florida residents, as well as residents of the Georgia and SC counties under evacuation orders who travel to the Atlanta area, to be their guests for the next four nights at SunTrust Park", the Braves said in a press release Thursday. Fans felt like the song, which is on the Braves' regular game day playlist, was inappropriate to play given the circumstances of the visiting team.

The song won't be played again during the four-game series.

While Irma is taking aim at Miami and other parts of Florida this weekend, some coastal Georgia counties have also been given evacuation orders to flee to safety in the case that Irma travels north.

Many players, including the Marlins' official Twitter account, have offered support and prayers for those in south Florida.
