Bill James - 1985 Interview, Part 3

This clip of an Armed Forces Network (AFN) Europe broadcast features Bill James and his sabermetrics approach to studying Major-League Baseball (MLB).   

The picture, which accompanies the clip, was taken in Switzerland during June of 1985 (when the interviews were recorded).  It depicts (from left to right):  Tracy Thibeau (the AFN interviewer), Dallas Adams (a baseball statistician) and Bill James (who also plays a key role in Moneyball, the book and movie).

One of Bill James' observations, about MLB, is:  "A walk is as good as a hit."  We hear him say that in this segment of the AFN broadcast recording.

NOTE:  To distinguish which of the speakers is Bill James, listen for the deepest voice.
