Moneyball Book Report

Decent Essays
The book I read is called Moneyball by Michael Lewis. Moneyball is about a major league baseball team called the Oakland Athletics and how they went from losing their best players during the free agency, to still be able to have a winning season and go on a 20 game winning streak. The Oakland A’s are a low budget baseball team, meaning that they are extremely outmatched when it comes to facing bigger city teams financially. The book goes over the life of Billy Beane who was a major league player that was projected to be a superstar but ended up not being very effective in the big leagues then transitioning to being the A’s general manager. Billy Beane has a strategy to how they will win which relies greatly on the statistics of the ball players.
