They weren't seated together; they just happened to both be there on the same night, it appears.

Bateman has been in town for "Office Christmas Party," with Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Munn, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon and others. It's not his first Atlanta rodeo; he also filmed "Identity Thief" with Melissa McCarthy and "The Change-Up" with Ryan Reynolds here.

Bateman's now working on "Ozark," a Netflix series that he'll star in and direct. It's about a guy working to pay off debt to a drug lord.

Murray especially had a big time at the ballpark. He signed autographs, chitchatted with fans and even joined the announcers in the broadcast booth.

The Cubs won 8-2. Ah, well.

Hey look, longtime sportscaster Dick Vitale was there, too!
