With baseball season over, Fenway has become a movie set again. Brad Pitt, one of the stars of "Moneyball," was spied outside the park today preparing to shoot a scene with director Bennett Miller. (Fenway, of course, is also featured prominently in Ben Affleck's film, "The Town.") In the big screen version of Michael Lewis's book, "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game," Pitt plays Oakland A's GM Billy Beane, who assembles a team on the cheap using statistical data. The cast also includes Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Chris Pratt, who plays former Sox catcher Scott Hatteberg.
