UPDATE: A beautiful high-res version has finally gone online at Yahoo!. You can watch it below.

In 2002, Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane decided to use a different strategy when finding players to be a part of his baseball organization. Without the resources of a team in cities like New York or Chicago, Beane decided fill his roster with players that weren't power hitters or all stars, but rather knew how to get on base. It was a move that completely worked against everything the sport had worked with for the last century, and it ended up impacting the game in a major way. In 2003 journalist Michael Lewis wrote a book about it and that book has now become a movie. Check out the trailer below.
