Trivia: Although it isn't shown in the film, Billy Beane managed, by using Paul DePodesto's sabermetric analysis, to get thirteen of the twenty players he wanted in the 2002 amateur draft. At the time, this was unprecedented; no GM before had ever finished the draft with more than six of their top choices, and most GMs are lucky to even get their top two or three choices.
Factual error: When Beane takes his daughter to look at guitars, she plays and sings Lenka's "The Show", a single which wasn't released until 2009, despite the movie taking place in 2002-2003. (00:42:45 - 00:44:10)
