What's causing this DVD remote control to become too hot to handle?

I just purchased an inexpensive DVD player for a relative, and the player works fine. The remote that was included with it is another matter. I put 2 fresh AAA batteries in it, and started reading the instructions for it's operation...when I picked up the remote 1-2 minutes later, the battery box at the end of the remote had heated up to where it was painful to hold. I opened the box and saw that one battery had gotten so hot the plastic cover on it had begun to deform so I pried both batteries out. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this to happen? I've never experienced this before.
