Brad Pitt graces the cover of the Sept. 26 issue of the magazine wearing an Oakland A’s hat with the headline The New Moneyball.

But while he plays a baseball coach in the upcoming flick, Brad confesses he is completely ignorant about baseball in real life.

“It’s shameful how little I know about baseball … I’m amazed they let me do this movie,” Pitt, 47, tells the mag.

“Baseball and I didn’t get along that well,” he adds. “I wrestled one year [in high school]. I dove one year. Everything but baseball.”

So why did he want to be in the movie?

“I’m a sucker for the underdog story,” he confesses.

“What we were trying to do is tell an unconventional story in the Trojan horse of a conventional baseball movie.”

As for getting on the cover of Sports Illustrated, he comments: “I was just happy to do Sports Illustrated. To do something other than the fashion-y things, for something I respect, is much more fun.”
