Overview:

Ahead of the Curve: Inside the Baseball Revolution : Emmy Award-winning sportscaster Brian Kenny wants to reshape the way we think about baseball. The biggest proponent of sports analytics in the mainstream media, Kenny says that groupthink and tradition are standing in the way of smarter, better baseball.

Kenny shows why blind spots (the sacrifice bunt is good strategy - if you like scoring fewer runs) and biases (stop hiring managers based on their looks) cause us to cling to strategies that belong in the nostalgia bin. Digging deep into baseball history, he explains how the game has evolved and why it's time to ditch outmoded thinking and herd mentality. Ahead of the Curve points the way to the future of baseball.
