DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -

One wrong song and you're out!

The music stopped at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona Beach on Wednesday after a minor league umpire ejected an intern in charge of stadium music because heĀ  played "Three Blind Mice" during the game.

Derek Dye, a Daytona Cubs intern with the University of Illinois, was ejected in the eighth inning a game between the Cubs and the Fort Myers Miracle.

Cubs manager Brian Harper was arguing a call at first base when he heard home plate umpire Mario Seneca bellow, "You're out."

Harper says he thought he was being kicked out of the game. Instead, the umpire ejected Dye.

The public address system at the stadium was shut down for the rest of the game.

The Cubs won the game 2-1.
