Billy Beane net worth, wiki & biography:
Billy Beane struggled for many seasons on the Mets, Twins and Tigers as a reserve outfielder, and determined to not return as a player in the 1990 season. Instead, he requested the Oakland A’s GM to become a substitute scout. He worked his way up to Assistant GM in 1994. Using the now famous sabermetric principle, he managed to make relatively undervalued players compete exceptionally well in the major leagues. This is shown in 2006, where the A’s ranked 24th out of 30 in salaries, but had the 5th-best regular season record.
Billy Beane Net Worth $6 Million
Because of the success of these principles, he was the topic of Michael Lewis’s 2003 novel on baseball economics, “Moneyball.” The novel has been made into a film, where Brad Pitt played Beane who had been given a fairly reasonable amount of money to work with his likeness to tell his narrative. He also now makes $500,000 a year with the A’s. Beane was born March 29, 1962 in Orlando, Florida.
