Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt's Baseball Talent

Brad Pitt could be a professional baseball player.

The 'Fight Club' star was so impressive in his training for upcoming film 'Moneyball' - in which he plays a baseball manager - he could forge a career in the sport if his acting career goes downhill, says his co-star, former San Francisco Giants professional Casey Bond.

Casey said: "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."

While Brad could be a baseball star, Casey also praised the 47-year-old actor - who raises six children with partner Angelina Jolie - as a "master" of his craft who gave great advice to his less-experienced sporting co-stars.

He told E! Online: "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."

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.
