I don't agree with Selig's decision to make the game count toward the WS (I think it was his decision, don't scream at me for that if I'm wrong) but I always enjoyed the fanfare of this game.
Why the hell was Brad Pitt involved? Weird choice.
The upcoming movie "Moneyball" stars Brad Pitt in the role of Billy Beane.
Being an NL guy, you may not be familiar with the Oakland Athletics and how
their young GM, Billy Beane, changed the metrics of baseball GM's,
creating a statistical explosion for cheap talent that led the way to other
GM's of similar background and philosophy to be hired, such as Theo Epstein
in Boston and Andrew Freidman in Tampa.
That is probably why Brad Pitt was involved. Just a guess though.
