Jonah Hill Throws Out First Pitch On Sunday Before Moneyball World Premiere

Actor Jonah Hill has been making the media rounds promoting the world premiere of his new movie Moneyball. Hill co-stars with Brad Pitt in a movie based on Michael Lewis' 2003 book that chronicled Billy Beane's attempts to revolutionize the way baseball teams analyze talent and put together a competitive team without breaking the bank.

Hill has been making the rounds of baseball parks across the country getting an opportunity to throw out first pitches. On Sunday September 18, Hill was in attendance at the Oakland A's game against the Detroit Tigers and had the opportunity to throw out the first pitch. Hill was joined by Stephen Bishop, who plays David Justice, and Casey Bond, who plays Chad Bradford. They got to throw out their pitches to former A's first baseman Scott Hatteberg. The A's brought in Hatteberg for the first pitch because he is one of the central characters in the movie. He will likely be in attendance at Monday's world premiere.
