Moneyball (2011): Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Robin Wright

In 1997, Billy Beane, General Manager, Oakland A's, changes how the game of baseball is played by creating Baseball economics.  Based on the book, "Moneyball: the Art of Winning an Unfair Game".   Billy Beane, Pitt, hires Harvard graduated statistician, Peter Brandt, Hill, and together they hire players based on statistics rather than on popularity.  The acting is superb, baseball game exciting and the story keeps audience focused on the outcome. Excellent film about change; accepting change and what makes a team win versus losing.
  • #1: Team attitude combined with best skills of each team member.
  • #2: No one is a the team.
  • #: Always team - team - team.
Great Quote:  "Winning isn't everything; Winning is the Only thing".  Vince Lombardi
