Ben Affleck/Matt Damon Movie Still in Works about Yankees Wife Swap

On March 5, 1973 the New York Yankees made history by having the first documented wife swap in Major League Baseball history. Yankees teammates Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich announced that they traded families, including wives, children and dogs, in an interesting turn of events. The swap worked out well for Peterson who eventually married his best friend’s former wife and had four children with her while things didn’t go as well for Kekich and Marilyn Peterson. These two broke up shortly after the swap and had to watch as Fritz and Kekich’s wife went on to live happily ever after. You can’t make this stuff up but directors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will try to at least dramatize it enough to make it into a major motion picture in the coming years.

No release date has been announced for the project and no cast members have been cast as the idea has been thrown around back and forth and almost scrapped all together. The project, for now at least, seems to be back on and should be an interesting watch if you’re a Yankees fan. I wouldn’t go to the theater to see this but it will be something I will definitely check out if the movie idea ever comes to fruition.
