With this episode, we embark on a two episode exploration of baseball movies. Moneyball stars Brad Pitt and it takes a look at the evolution of the way modern baseball teams are assembled. Like most baseball movies, this movie isn’t about the game so much as it is about the people who make a living within the game. This the second movie in a row that Melissa hasn’t seen. If we can find about three more, that will probably encompass cover every movie she’s never seen!
Our next movie is another movie Melissa hasn’t seen! We’ll be watching Bull Durham!
