Baseball was the pioneer in the application of Big Data to sports by the introduction of Sabermetrics. Sabermetrics, coined by Bill James, is the statiscal analysis of baseball records, especially in order to evaluate and compare the performance of individual players.  In the late 1990's Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A's, applied Sabermetrics to operate a lower salaried team. Beane's success was eventually chronicled in Michael Lewis' book, Moneyball, and subsequent movie starring Brad Pitt as Beane. Beane's early succes of Sabermetrics was realized by the Boston Red Sox, who started to heavily implement Sabermetrics in 2003 and played a vital role in thier 2004 & 2007 World Series victories. Due to The Red Sox Sabermetrics success many other Major League organizations started to adopt the principles of Sabermetrics into their organizations. Eventually the success of Sabermetrics in Major League Baseball led to increasingly widespread uses at all different levels of baseball and other sports.
