The Paycheck actor has always been a fan of Baseball but he made people around him hooked on the sport as well. In a past interview with People, Ben Affleck’s former wife Jennifer Garner revealed that he made her fall in love with the Baseball sport. Garner revealed that she used to love football since her childhood days. But she developed an interest in football when she met Affleck.

“We’re really a baseball house,” When I was first dating Ben, I’d never watched baseball. I didn’t really care, I may say, about baseball. But if you watch three or four games in a row, you learn just enough to hook you in. And it’s the same as a soap opera, right? If you watch three or four, you get just enough of a storyline to grab you, and that’s why people are so into them.”

Ben Affleck is a loyal fan of the Boston Red Sox team and that’s the reason he refused once to wear a Yankees cap in the filming of Gone Girl in 2014. In a statement released by The New York Times, Affleck mentioned the reason why couldn’t wear the Yankees cap.

“I will not wear a Yankees hat. I just can’t. I can’t wear it because it’s going to become a thing, David. I will never hear the end of it. I can’t do it.’ And I couldn’t put it on my head.”

As Ben Affleck has an interest in sports, he might be a fair choice to be cast in the Safdie brothers movie.
