In 2002, Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s defied baseball by winning 20 straight games, winning the American League West after stumbling out of the gate. In 2003, Michael Lewis wrote Moneyball, which described how Beane used an unorthodox method to piece together a competitive team with a low payroll. In the film adaptation of this book, Brad Pitt stars as Beane in one of the best sports movies of the last 20 years. Moneyball mixes in humor, heart, and the love of the game into one great spectacle that both fans and non-fans will enjoy.
