Night Out the Movies: “Moneyball” on Sun 9/25

22 September 2011

Join us for a Night Out at the Movies on Sunday evening at the Oswego Cinema 7. We’ll attend the 7:10 PM showing of Moneyball. The film, based on the book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis, stars Brad Pitt as

Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A’s and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball’s conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. It’s more than baseball, it’s a revolution – one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he’s tearing out the heart and soul of the game. — (C) Sony Pictures

After the screening, we’ll gather in the upstairs lobby of the theater and discuss the film. We’ll be joined by SUNY Oswego professor Ranjit Dighe. Currently teaching a course on the economics of baseball at the college, Ranjit will bring his perspective on the business and art of baseball to our discussion.

All are welcome! Please join us.
