It's the ultimate in fantasy baseball: You get to pick the roster, set the lineup, and decide on strategies - with real players, in a real ballpark, playing in real time. That's what Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller got to do when the Sonoma Stompers, an independent minor league team in California, offered them the chance to run the team's baseball operation's according to the most advanced statistics. Their story is unlike any other baseball tale you've ever read. We tag along as Lindbergh and Miller apply their number crunching insights to all aspects of assembling and running a team, following one cardinal rule: It has to work. We meet colourful figures like general manager Theo Fightmaster and boundary breakers like the first openly gay player in American professional baseball. Even José Canseco makes a cameo appearance. Will their knowledge of numbers bring the Stompers a championship?
