Casey Beane is the daughter of Auckland Athletics’ current General Manager Billy Beane and his ex-wife, Cathy Sturdivant. Casey rose to fame for her character in a critically acclaimed Hollywood film in 2011; the film depicted her then-GM father’s cost-effective approach to player evaluation and recruitment.
Billy’s daughter Casey is also an important storyline, both in the screen version and in her father’s real life. Apparently, to some extent, it is because of her that the Orlando-born former outfielder is still a member of the Auckland Athletics, even three decades after he first arrived.
Find out how Casey influenced one of the reasons Billy stayed with the A’s for so long. Also, read what her life has been like since becoming a movie character; whether she’s as famous as her father, if she’s married, if she has a boyfriend, and more.
Casey Bean Studied At Kenyon College
Casey Bean was born in the early 1990s, probably in May, in California. Her paternal grandfather was a naval commander.
Casey attended Sage Hill School (2004-2008). Billy’s daughter also graduated from Kenyon College in Ohio (2008-2012).
From her father’s marriage to his current partner Tara Bean, Casey is a half-sister to Tinsley Bean and Brayden Bean. It was around her birth that Billy decided to pursue a career in Scouting.
Casey Beane’s Parents, Billy, And Cathy Had Been Together Since Their Childhood
Casey’s parents Billy and Cathy got engaged in February 1986 in San Diego. Billy and Cathy have known each other since they were children. They both grew up in San Diego. The former couple also went to the same high school.
Casey Bean’s mother, Sturdivant, born in 1970, was a three-time member of the University of California, Saint Diego tennis team.
She was born to Billy and his ex-wife Cathy Sturdivant when the former was in the early stages of his career as a professional baseball player.
Billy Bean Rejected To Leave California For His Daughter, Casey Beane
In the autumn of 2002, Billy turned down the opportunity to move from Oakland to Boston because he couldn’t bear the thought of having to move away from his daughter, whose mother was living in San Diego, California at the time.
Billy turned down several offers from other teams, mainly so that he would not leave California and could always be there for his daughter Casey. He once turned down an offer of 12 million dollars from the Boston Red Sox to stay close to her.
After all, when Casey Bain was 20 years old and on the road to independence, there were no longer any geographical limits to his career.
Who Portrayed Casey Beane In Moneyball
Actress Kerris Dorsey, of Walk The Line, Just Like Heaven fame, played Casey in the 2011 sports drama film Moneyball.
The film is set when she was an early teenager. Ironically, when the film premiered, Casey was already a senior at Kenyon College.
Did Casey Sing The Song In The Film, Moneyball?
Among the several scenes between the actress who played Casey in Moneyball and Brad Pitt’s Billy, there are two clips of Casey singing to her on-screen father.
In the final scene, Pitt, playing the then-general manager of the Oakland Athletic, plays his daughter Casey’s songs while driving. This scene is related to an earlier episode in the film in which she sang a song to him in a guitar shop. The song is called The Show and performed by the Australian singer Lenka.
Since then, many believe that the real Casey Bean is behind the voice. However, it was the actress Kerisa Dorsey who provided the voice for the performance.
Dorsey was 13 years old at the time of the film.
One Other Fact From Her Character In Moneyball
It turns out that her hairstyle in the film is from when she was in third grade.
“Dad, I just watched the trailer. That’s my haircut from third grade,”
Kasey said to her father one day in the summer after seeing the film for the first time.
What Is Casey Beane’s Profession?
Her LinkedIn indicates that Casey is currently a Director (Client Relations Group) at Balyasny Asset Management LP in Chicago, Illinois.
She joined the company in September 2019. Before Balyasny, Billie’s daughter worked with Casey at Citadel, Illinois, overseeing investor relations.
She also worked in healthcare in Washington DC for a time during her studies. As reported, Casey lives in the Greater Chicago area recently.
Is Casey Beane Married?
Although Billie and Kelly’s daughter Casey is not clearly defined or even mentioned, it seems that she has a partner, if not a marriage partner. However, this claim is linked to her seemingly inactive Facebook, where there are a couple of photos of her and a man named Jake Quaid.
However, the actual state of the relationship between Beane and Quaid is debatable. Although each of the pictures suggests that they might have had some serious relationship behind their backs, neither of them has ever disclosed whether they are in a romantic relationship.
Adding to the confusion is the fact that Casey has not been so forthcoming on her social networks lately. Her blocked Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other similar links make everything even more hidden.
How Rich Is Casey Beane’s Father?
Casey’s former general manager turned executive vice-president of baseball operations at Auckland Athletics, Billy Beane has been a multi-millionaire sports figure for decades.
Using his famous sabermetric principles to build a winning team despite an extremely low payroll, Billy became something of a cultural icon for sports analysts.
While Bein may not have been the best-paid general manager in the history of the sport, he is certainly one of the most famous names in the field.
However, Casey’s father’s net worth of more than $30 million USD is complemented by other figures. In addition to his reported salary of $3 million USD, he is also a minority owner of Auckland Athletics, Barnsley FC of the English EFL Championship, and AZ Alkmaar of the Dutch Eredivisie.
However, the former New York Mets player clearly and easily exceeds the definition of a rich man.
On the other hand, the net worth of his daughter Casey is very unclear. Given her unremarkable life and typical job, there is a good chance that she still has a long way to go before she accumulates as much wealth as her father.
