PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Actor and Pittsburgh native Michael Keaton says he's sorry if he hurt anyone's feelings with his comments before the Pirates home opener on Monday; but he isn't backing down.

Keaton has been taking some heat for criticizing Pirates management during a news conference before the home opener.

Before throwing out the first pitch for the game, Keaton said the team needs to cough up more money to put a winning team on the field. He went on to say that not doing so was disrepectful to the fans who continue to support the Bucs.

Last night, Keaton called in to the Subway Nightly Sports Call on UPN Pittsburgh to clarify his position -- and apologize if he offended anyone.

"I'm not quite sure what I did here, but if there's something that hurt somebody's feelings -- or I got personal, which I know I didn't... I don't know what I did, but I don't really care... Listen to me very clearly: I am totally sorry."

The Pirates payroll is the fourth lowest in the major leagues.
