Speaking about his education, he went to Mt. Carmel High School in San Diego, where he played baseball, American Football, and basketball. He was a baseball star who caught the attention of many MLB, so he eventually declined the offer to enroll into Stanford University on a scholarship, to pursue his professional baseball career.

Playing Career

Billy Beane’s career officially began when he was selected as the 23rd overall pick in the first round of the 1980 MLB Draft by the New York Mets, signing a contract worth $125,000; he admitted that he didn’t go to Stanford and signed with the Mets because he was motivated by money.

He then was assigned to the Little Falls Mets of the Class A New York–Penn League to prove his potential, then played for the Lynchburg Mets of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, before he was promoted to the Jackson Mets of the Class AA Texas League. His first promotion to MLB proper came in 1984; during that season, he appeared in five games for the Mets, but the following season he played for the Tidewater Tides of the Class AAA International League, while appearing in eight games for the Mets.

Following the end of the season, Billy was traded to the Minnesota Twins, for which he appeared in 80 games in 1986.

He also played more than 30 games for the Toledo Mud Hens of the International League, and was then sent to the Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast League (PCL). After batting .285 for the team, he was invited to spend the rest of the season with the Twins, and was then traded to the Detroit Tigers in 1988. He played only six games for the Tigers, before becoming a free agent and signing with the Oakland Athletics, appearing in over 30 games. In 1990, he re-signed with the Athletics but was sent to the minor leagues by the end of spring training. He then decided to quit his playing career, and started working as a scout.

Front Office Career

From 1990 to 1993, Billy Beane served in the position of an advance scout for the Oakland Athletics, afterwards being promoted to the position of Assistant General Manager (AGM) of the team, and in charge of scouting minor-league players. Following the death of former owner Walter A. Haas, Jr., new owners of the team asked Billy to slash payrolls. He and GM Sandy Alderson then started using a sabermetrics system to find the value that other teams didn’t see in undervalued players. Thanks to that, the Athletics had the fifth-best regular-season record, although on a low budget. After the 1997 season, he succeeded Sandy as GM.

The team reached the play-offs four consecutive times from 2000 to 2003, becoming in 2002 the first team to win 20 games in a row. During the same year, he was invited by the Boston Red Sox to become their GM for $12.5 million, which he didn’t accept; hHe was later rewarded with a small portion of the Athletics ownership. They also won their first play-off series under Billy Beane in 2006, so over the next several years, many other baseball teams started using the sabermetrics system as well. Billy was eventually promoted to executive vice president of baseball operations after the 2015 season.

Other Ventures

After the Oakland Athletics ownership purchased a stake of the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer, Billy Beane started developing a system for the evaluation of soccer players; so far, he’s collaborated with such managers of the English soccer teams as former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In 2015, he was hired as an advisor for Robert Eenhoorn, the general director of the Dutch soccer club AZ Alkmaar. Two years later, he became a member of a consortium that purchased the English team Barnsley Football Club.

Besides that, he’s also served on the board of directors of the software company NetSuite since 2007, and also worked as a consultant for the video game “MLB Front Office Manager” (2009), in which he also appeared.

Billy Beane is the subject of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book entitled “Moneyball: The Art Of Winning An Unfair Game”, published in 2003. The book was later adapted to the 2011 film “Moneyball”, in which Billy was played by Brad Pitt.
