"The Only Rule Is It Has To Work" with Ben Lindbergh
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, May 12 at 7pm
What would happen if two statistics-minded outsiders were allowed to run a professional baseball team?

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, in a real playoff race.

That’s what baseball analysts Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller got to do when an independent minor-league team in California, the Sonoma Stompers, offered them the chance to run its baseball operations according to the most advanced statistics.

Lindbergh and Miller applied their number-crunching insights to all aspects of assembling and running a team, following one cardinal rule for judging each innovation they tried: It Has To Work.

Join Ben Lindbergh in the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse on May 12. RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “The Only Rule Is It Has To Work” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Ben Lindbergh is a staff writer for “FiveThirtyEight” and, with Sam Miller, the cohost of “Effectively Wild,” the daily “Baseball Prospectus” podcast. He is a former staff writer for “Grantland” and a former editor in chief of “Baseball Prospectus.” (Clubhouse)
