Go behind the scenes of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book Moneyball (now a major motion picture) and discover how Beane and DePodesta shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing statistical methodology that inevitably led the Oakland A’s, one of the worst teams in baseball, to six playoff appearances and five American League West Division Titles.
The conventional wisdom in Major League Baseball is that wealthy teams — who spend three times as much on talent as poor teams — will win out. However, during Beane and DePodesta`s four seasons together in Oakland, the A`s won more regular season games than the New York Yankees, who during the same period spent $350 million more on player payroll than did the Athletics.
Combining baseball and business strategies and offering an unprecedented look inside the inspiring true story, Beane, DePodesta and Lewis discuss the Moneyball philosophy and its lessons for businesses everywhere. Audiences will be inspired and uplifted by this rousing sports-underdog story.
