NEW YORK (WFAN) — When Michael Lewis’ “Moneyball” came out in 2003, it changed the way almost everyone looked at baseball. The players mentioned in the book changed the way Lewis’ wife, Tabitha Soren, looked at baseball.

Soren, the former MTV News anchor and journalist, recently released the book “Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream,” published by Aperture. Soren’s photography depicts the journey of the Oakland Athletics’ draft class of 2002. Their stories began in “Moneyball,” but baseball and life took them in different directions.
