It looks like the Red Sox are stepping up to the plate when it comes to Bennifer.

The Boston-based baseball team—Ben Affleck's favorite—recently posted a hilarious TikTok, and in it they shout out a very special guest that sat in their stands back in 2019—Jennifer Lopez

"To the girl on the Monster for Sunday Night Baseball in 2019," the text read alongside a clip featuring the 51-year-old singer sitting in the left field wall of Fenway Park."We will never forget you." 

Then, as the team's mascot, Wally the Green monster, gave her a kiss on the cheek, the caption read, "Come back soon. We miss you."

Seventeen years after calling off their engagement, Jennifer and Ben have reportedly reconnected, multiple sources confirmed to E! News, and were even photographed during a weeklong vacation in Montana. The news broke about a month after her split from Alex Rodriguez.

A.Rod, a former Yankee, seemed to throw some subtle shade at Bennifer's reconciliation. When asked on May 12 about their reunion, all he had to say was "Go Yankees!"

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck: Romance Rewind

It's no secret that the Red Sox and the Yankees have a longstanding rivalry stretching back for—well, forever—and it's also no secret that the Red Sox are Ben's no. 1 team. In fact, he went as far as refusing to wear a Yankees hat on the set of Gone Girl.

"I will not wear a Yankees hat. I just can't," as he recalled to the New York Times. "I can't wear it because it's going to become a thing."


The Red Sox's TikTok isn't the only nod to the couple's rekindled romance that has been posted recently. On May 13, Jennifer took to Instagram to post what she called her "favorite album she's ever done so far." The album? Well, it was This Is Me…Then, which famously featured a string of songs dedicated to her then-fiancé Ben.
Sounds like the pair reconnecting has everyone, including an entire MLB team, in a fever pitch.
