FALL BOOK TO MOVIE SERIES





In this famous Book-to-Movie blockbuster, Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane challenges the system and defies conventional wisdom when he is forced to rebuild his small-market team on a limited budget.
Despite opposition from the old guard, the media, fans and their own field manager, Beane with the help of a young, number-crunching, Yale-educated economist, develops
a roster of misfits and along the way, forever changes the way the game is played.  Based on a true story.
