Los Angeles: Hollywood star Brad Pitt now can also try his hands in baseball as he has been described as a pretty good player by former San Francisco Giants sportsman Casey Bond.
The 47-year-old actor was so impressive in his training for upcoming film `Moneyball` - in which he plays a baseball manager - that he surprised his co-star, Bond, reported a website.
"He`s got some skill. He might have missed his calling in baseball I guess. If acting didn`t work out he`s pretty good. I think that he`s got that in his back pocket if anything.
"He was out there a couple days and he took batting practice with us and stuff, threw the baseball around. He was very much involved with all aspects of the baseball side of
the movie as well," Bond said.
Pitt, who raises six children with partner Angelina Jolie, was also praised for being a "master" of his craft and giving great advice to his less-experienced sporting co-stars.
"He had a lot of great advice. When we were shooting scenes, in between takes he`d walk me through different techniques he used so everything comes across right on film...obviously he`s a master at that," Bond added.
The film - which also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Jonah Hill, Chris Pratt - is based on the true story of `Oakland A` manager Billy Beane, who attempts to lead a competitive team to success despite the club`s poor financial situation.
