Despite Affleck’s well-documented devotion to the Red Sox, the team hasn’t faired well on the actor’s birthday (Aug. 15, 1972), sporting a paltry 0-13 record since the opening of his 1997 breakthrough hit “Good Will Hunting,” according to ESPN. (And, as an aside, did you know he brought Jennifer Lopez to Fenway Park? Yes, that did happen.)
Hopefully the Red Sox can reverse their fortunes this year when they visit the Toronto Blue Jays on Aug. 15.
