Brad Pitt And His Son Aren't Big Baseball Fans

Brad Pitt talks baseball

Brad Pitt may be portraying one of the baseball biz's biggest names, Billy Beane, in the upcoming film Moneyball, but the actor admitted his knowledge of the sport doesn't compare to his character's.

While doing press rounds for the fall sports drama he shared, "It's shameful how little I know."

It doesn't sound like his son, presumably his oldest Maddox, is developing anymore of any interest than his dad either. Brad shared a story about his first bit of baseball bonding with his boy, saying:

"I took my son to a game, a Yankees game, with Spike Lee and his sons. He's right next to the dugout, He's got the great seats and he's really involved with the Yankees. He talks to the players as they are in the batting circle, and it is customary for the heroes to bring out some of the cracked bats and give them to the kids."

Brad continued to explain that Spike Lee introduced him and his son to one of the most well-known players of the era, Derek Jeter, who "couldn't have been more chill."

The shortstop even handed a customary cracked bat to Brad's son, but to his dismay the boy replied, "It's broken!"

Ha! Hopefully Maddox will understand the treasure he acquired one day, but then again, maybe baseball just isn't his thing!

Derek Jeter And Minka Kelly Split!

Minka Kelly Derek Jeter Break up

So sad! We really liked this couple and thought they might make it to marriage!

Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and actress Minka Kelly have gone their separate ways in what friends call an "amicable" split. A source said:

“The split was amicable, but they remain friends. They still really care for each other.”

It's pretty hard to NOT care about someone after 3 years together, so we truly hope they remain close and wish them the best in their future love lives!

Minka Kelly 'Didn't Know Anything About Baseball' Before Dating Derek Jeter

Minka and derek

At least she knew who Derek Jeter was!

The Yankee shortstop's girlfriend since 2008, Minka Kelly, revealed in HBO's new documentary, Derek Jeter 3K, that she didn't know ANYTHING about baseball before they began dating!

She shared in a scene in the doc about her boyfriends quest for his 3,000th hit:

"When I met Derek, I didn't know anything about baseball at all. I didn't know the difference between a run and a homerun. I thought if you made a connection with the ball, that was an automatic hit."

If that were true, A LOT more baseball players would have surpassed 3,000 hits! After her revelation, Jeter was quick to joke:

"She's lying. She had a poster of me on her wall when she was in high school."

LOLz! Since he won Rookie of the Year around the time she was old enough to drive, it's entirely possible she did!

He later corroborated her story and said she "really didn't know a thing about baseball. … I'd come home and she'd be happy and say, 'You got four hits!'"

Those days are long gone for them though. Minka is at Yankee stadium as much as Derek is as she roots him on during home games from his luxury box.

Derek Jeter rehab

Derek Jeter, who has been on the Yankee's disabled list since June 14th with a strained right calf, is ready to come back to the big leagues.

After stepping up the intensity of his workout Wednesday at the team's minor-league complex in Florida, training officials have decided he's ready to being playing again.

“I feel good now,” Jeter said. “I feel a lot better. I’m ready to get out of here.”

The shortstop will travel to Trenton to play in minor league games Saturday and Sunday, then meet up with his major league cohorts in Cleveland on Monday.

Hopefully by next week he'll be right back into the swing of things!
