NEW YORK (CBS/AP)  – Before the players hit the field for Major League Baseball’s All-Star game, sports fans got to hear from another all-star in action: Brad Pitt.

The Oscar-nominated actor narrated the opening segment of the 82nd All-Star Game, that aired Tuesday night, July 12th on Fox.


MLB said in a statement that Pitt and the segment “celebrates Major League Baseball All-Stars past and present, showing fans what it means to be the best.”

The 47-year-old stars as former baseball player and current Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane in the upcoming film “Moneyball,” due out in September.
