Billy Beane

Oakland A’s General Manager and Subject of Moneyball
Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane has molded the Oakland Athletics into a perennial postseason contender since assuming the general manager’s duties shortly following the 1997 season.


Under Beane’s watch, the A’s have compiled a 1300-1128 (.535) record over the last 15 seasons, which is the fourth-best record in the American League and seventh best in all of baseball during that time frame. The A’s have won five American League West titles (2000; 2002; 2003; 2006; 2012) and secured one AL Wild Card spot (2001) during that span. His teams have posted 90 or more wins in seven of the last 12 years.


His innovative management style inspired the 2003 book Moneyball, which was made into a film in 2011, starring Brad Pitt as Beane.
