Sports fans know that building a championship sports roster requires a successful mix of many factors: great scouting, superior management, and, arguably the most important factor of all – money. Star players often command higher salary, meaning teams must be willing to sign multi-million dollar contracts to secure the best talent to put their team in a position to win championships. A major critique within the sports world revolves around how bigger and higher-revenue teams have more money to spend on talented players, allowing them to maintain a significant competitive advantage over smaller teams with less money. But can a team with less money still compete with higher-revenue teams?

This principal question forms the premise of the book-turned-movie, ‘Moneyball’. In the book, Billy Beane, as general manager of the Oakland Athletics, used statistical analysis to build an overachieving and playoff-bound baseball team. The team was comprised of undervalued players and utilized a payroll that was a fraction the size of more lucrative teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.
