    Lin-Manuel Miranda attends the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on March 4, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

    The creator of one of Broadway’s most popular musicals has a new reason to root for the Chicago White Sox, and he gave the team a shout-out on Twitter Friday.

    Lin-Manuel Miranda, the actor and creator of the hit musical “Hamilton,” saw a viral tweet that featured White Sox pitchers Ryan Burr and Ian Hamilton sitting together in the team’s dugout, and he gave them a shout-out that referenced several of the musical’s songs:

    “Walk less,” Miranda tweeted.

    Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, and Aaron Burr, the man who killed Hamilton in a famous 1804 duel, are the stars of "Hamilton," a musical chronicling the life of one of the nation's founding fathers. 

    As Benjamin Hochman, who originally tweeted the photo, said, the duo gives a whole new meaning to the term “pitcher’s duel.”
