Billy Beane's Net Worth
Legendary American baseball general manager, and the man on whom the film “Moneyball” is based, Billy Beane has an estimated net worth of $20 million as of 2023, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Beane started his career as a professional baseball player. He went on to change the face of the sporting industry while working as a general manager for Oakland Athletics. He currently serves as a senior advisor and minority owner for the Oakland Athletics.
Beane's novel approach to baseball involved a number of technological innovations. In 2003, Michael Lewis wrote a book about him called "Moneyball," which was later adapted into a film starring Brad Pitt in the lead role.
Billy Beane’s Income and Salary
While Beane’s net worth seems lower than expected, it could have been much higher as he once turned down a $12.5-million, five-year contract with the Red Sox which would have made him the highest-paid general manager in sports history at the time. Beane chose to stay with the Athletics earning a salary of $1 million per year.
Beane turned down another four-year contract with the New York Mets in 2021 which reportedly would have paid him $12 million, making him the highest-paid manager, as per MLB Run. Beane became the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Athletics in 2015 and was moved to the role of senior advisor in 2022. He currently makes $3 million per year as a senior advisor with the team.
Apart from baseball, Beane has offered to apply his analytical principles to soccer as well. In 2015, he became an adviser for general director Robert Eenhoorn of AZ Alkmaar, and two years later, he joined a consortium that bought the English team Barnsley.
Further, he also served on the board of directors for NetSuite, a software/cloud computing company that was acquired by Oracle for $9 billion in 2016. With NetSuite, Beane earned around $4 million per year for his services between 2007 and 2014, as per Celebrity Net Worth. Beane has also worked as a consultant for the development of the video game "MLB Front Office Manager."

Real Estate Assets
Beane bought a $1.735 million home in Danville, California in 2002, to live with his family. The property is often regarded as the "McMansion," and it offers several features such as an outdoor pool. Beane and his wife reportedly listed the property for sale in 2013 for $1.895 million, as per Celebrity Net Worth.
After Billy divorced his first wife, Cathy Sturdivant, he started dating childhood friend Tara Beane. The two finally tied the knot in 1999 and they have been together for 24 years. Beane and Tara have twins Brayden and Tinsley Beane. Tara is also the stepmother to Casey Beane, who is Billy’s first child from his marriage with Cathy Sturdivant.
