Take Ben Out to the Ballgame!

7/31/2006 6:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's certainly not news that Ben Affleck is a huge Boston Red Sox fan -- he's been spotted at Fenway Park with wife Jennifer Garner plenty of times before. But never before has Ben made a play on the field -- well, almost.

Ben and Jen were seated in the first row along the first base side on Sunday for a game against the Los Angeles Angels, broadcast on ESPN. In the bottom of the second inning, a pop fly came in their direction and when Angels first baseman Howie Kendrick came over to make a play, but almost had the ball stolen away from him by a fan. That fan? Ben Affleck.

Kendrick was able to make the play and the Angels went on to win 10-4.

So not only did Affleck's beloved Sox lose, but he lost out on a souvenir too.
