* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The combination of music and clips for "The Streak".
** Culminating with Hatteberg's walk-off homer.
** Also Kerris Dorsey's cover of "The Show".
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Scott Hatteberg hitting a walk-off home run that not only saves the A's from losing (the score was tied at 11), but wins them their 20th consecutive game.
** The Athletics' record-breaking winning streak ('''20 games'''), in and of itself, was pretty damn impressive.

** [[TwentyFour Blink and you'll miss Aaron Pierce]] as one of the scouts.
* {{Tearjerker}}: It's very hard not to get misty-eyed while listening to Beane's daughter sing for him, especially if you're a father.
** The scene where Beane's got to tell Magnante that he's being sent to the minors. Even worse when you see the associated deleted scene where Beane mentions that Mags is playing scared - constantly worrying that his next pitch will be his last in the Majors.

[[note]]Even worse if you've read the book, because it gives critical background details on Magnante that the film omits.[[/note]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Some baseball fans snarked about the movie's timeliness considering the A's had recently fallen into a string of mediocrity [[note]] including the 2011 season which the film was released, the A's had gone five years without a winning record [[/note]] and Billy Beane's roster strategy being called into question. After the film's release, the A's revived their ''Moneyball'' success by winning their division the next two seasons (2012-13), a division that features two rival teams who were among the six highest payrolls in baseball.
