Brad Pitt has mixed emotions about baseball - the sport left him with 18 stitches and a bruised ego in high school and one of his most rewarding filming experiences on the set of Moneyball.
The movie star, who plays pioneering former Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane in the new sports film, admits he was never particularly good at the game, unlike pal George Clooney who once tried out for the Cincinnati Reds.
He explains, "It's shameful how little I knew about baseball coming into this; my baseball career ended with a pop fly (ball) at high noon and 18 stitches in the cheekbone. I'm a really c**p baseball player. I don't even like baseball that much. My interest pretty much came to an end when I took a baseball in the face. But I am a sports fan."
And the actor insists his son, Maddox, is showing an interest in baseball: "My eldest (child) has a wicked arm. Mine was c**p."
