This is a bit old but,

last night on the Science channel they were running a show called: Baseball's Secret Formula: Sabermetrics.

It was pretty cool, although the stuff they went over was pretty basic to most of us it was presented in a way I guess that might be easier for others to enjoy. My gf was watching with me and was pretty shocked to see why sac bunting and intentionally walking a guy are BAD things.

I think the program is from last year so no idea when it'll be on again, but here's the Science Channel's baseball page:

Gives you an idea of some of what was covered. Also the most ironic part, Bill James naming Joe Morgan to his all time Sabermetric all star team.
