Forget baseball — it seems like the Boston Red Sox may be playing matchmaker.

On Wednesday, the team posted a cheeky video on TikTok, featuring clips of Jennifer Lopez at a game at Fenway Park in 2019, when her then-fiancé Alex Rodriguez was on hand broadcasting for ESPN.

Set to an instrumental version of the song “Never Forget You” by Zara Larsson and Mnek, the clip features Lopez sitting high atop the stadium’s famed Green Monster.

“To the girl on the Monster for Sunday Night Baseball in 2019. Come back soon. We miss you,” the team wrote over the video, which also featured her having some fun with the team’s mascot, Wally the Green Monster.

Lopez and ex-fiancé Ben Affleck, a die-hard Red Sox fan, took in multiple games in the early 2000s when they were one of the hottest celebrity couples around.

The TikTok post doesn’t mention Affleck by name, but he and Lopez have been the subject of rumors in recent weeks that they are together again. Affleck’s pal Matt Damon even said he’d love to see them back on, and “Jeopardy!” fans thought a recent episode predicted the possibility they’d date again.

The battle for J.Lo’s cheering interests is about as tricky as hitting a fastball.

Rodriguez, of course, played for the Red Sox’s archrival, the New York Yankees. Lopez also grew up in the Bronx, where the Yankees play.

Red Sox fans may want to tread cautiously about Lopez and Affleck seeing each other again. They broke up in January 2004, and later that year, the team won its first World Series in 86 years, breaking the so-called Curse of the Bambino. The team would go on to win another three World Series after that. Coincidence? You be the judge.
