Brad Pitt is taking time off from saving the world to narrate the MLB All-Star opening segment. The 82nd All-Star game will commemorate the players in the game, and according to the MLB, ”Pitt will celebrate Major League Baseball All-Stars past and present, showing fans what it means to be the best.”
Pitt is starring in an upcoming biopic film about baseball player and manager Billy Beane called Moneyball. The movie, which is out in September details how the Oakland A’s’ front office took advantage of more empirical gauges of player performance to field a team that could compete successfully against richer competitors in the MLB. Despite his newest movie role, Pitt admits he knows nothing about baseball, “I knew very little about baseball apart from taking one in the face in junior high,” (which resulted in 18 stiches).
While Pitt will not be at the game, Jordin Sparks and Michelle Branch will sing the National Anthem and “God Bless America” before the game!
