9780451415172: Trading Bases: How a Wall Street Trader Made a Fortune Betting on Baseball

An ex–Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics and beat the Vegas odds with his own betting methods. Here is the story of how Joe Peta turned fantasy baseball into a dream come true.
 
Joe Peta turned his back on his Wall Street trading career to pursue an ingenious—and incredibly risky—dream. He would apply his risk-analysis skills to Major League Baseball, and treat the sport like the S&P 500.
 
In Trading Bases, Peta takes us on his journey from the ballpark in San Francisco to the trading floors and baseball bars of New York and the sportsbooks of Las Vegas, telling the story of how he created a baseball “hedge fund” with an astounding 41 percent return in his first year. And he explains the unique methods he developed.
 
Along the way, Peta provides insight into the Wall Street crisis he managed to escape: the fragility of the midnineties investment model; the disgraced former CEO of Lehman Brothers, who recruited Peta; and the high-adrenaline atmosphere where million-dollar sports-betting pools were common.

From the Back Cover:

"Fascinating. . . . The deftly explained math only enhances the ballpark drama. . . . Peta's hardheaded but warmhearted narrative reads like a mash-up of Liar's Poker and Moneyball peppered with besotted evocations of emerald-green outfields and sports-bar camaraderie. His is that rare finance saga that's both smart and loads of fun." -- Publisher's Weekly 

"Joe Peta has a wonderful story to tell and precious insights into the evaluation of talent, investments, and risk. This is a great book for anyone with capital to allocate. But if you love baseball half as much as Peta does, you will find Trading Bases absolutely irresistible." -- Tyler Cowen, author of The Great Stagnation and An Economist Gets Lunch 

"Joe Peta has joined the new wave of baseball analysts who are changing the way many of us look at the game. He is taking a rightful place alongside guys like Jonah Keri, Jay Jaffe, and Dave Cameron as must-reads for me in the baseball landscape. He reminds me in some ways of Nate Silver -- he's able to blend different worlds (in this case, baseball and finance) using his intense knowledge of each to give us a very entertaining read." -- Dave Flemming, play-by-play announcer for the San Francisco Giants and ESPN national sportscaster

About the Author:

After earning an MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, Joe Peta was a Wall Street market maker and hedge fund stock trader for fifteen years, but he was a sports bettor for even longer. A lifelong baseball fan, he lives in San Francisco with his wife and two daughters.
