THE MONEYBALL MAN: Beane discusses Pitt’s portrayal of him, A’s baseball during stop at IUS

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

But as much as he likes to win, Beane said baseball will never trump his main passion.

“I’ve never wanted my professional life to be my self esteem,” he said. “For me, it’s always about my children.” 

As for the book, Beane said he and then-A’s Assistant General Manager Paul DePodesta were not allowed to have input on Lewis’ work. 

Instead, Beane said he was initially led to believe Lewis was writing a piece on the A’s rise to success for a newspaper. Only after months of interviews was he let in on the fact that Lewis was writing a book that would be reference material for business leaders and baseball executives alike. 

“He even admits now how sneaky he was when he embedded himself,” Beane said with a smile in reference to Lewis. 

As for this season, Beane said he likes his club. But he admitted the Rangers and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be challenging foes to deal with.

“I don’t think we’re going to sneak up on them this year,” Beane said. 

 

About the Sanders Series

The Sanders Speaker Series launched in 2008 when Judge Carlton Sanders and his wife Sue Sanders donated $300,000 to IUS to bring well-known speakers to the university. 

The couple has donated $560,000 to the IU Southeast Business School, and established the Sanders Chair of the department. 

“The Sanders are tremendous supporters of IU Southeast,” said IU Southeast Chancellor Sandra Patterson-Randles. “We appreciate their selflessness and their commitment to higher education.”
