VIDEO: Alternate ending to 'Major League,' in which Moneyball is born

Since I've never seen the movie, I've also never seen the alternate ending. At least not until now. In that alternative ending, it becomes apparent team owner Rachel Phelps invented the Moneyball philosophy long before Billy Beane and Michael Lewis. Observe:

"They all have flaws that concealed their real talent, or I wouldn't have been able to afford them."
