Inside the corporate boardroom, however, Beane has been putting some serious wood on the ball. In 2007 the baseball executive joined the board of NetSuite, a Silicon Valley software company founded by billionaire Larry Ellison that builds products for salespeople at small businesses. Beane's long tenure on the board and NetSuite's explosive stock performance -- shares have nearly doubled in a year -- have reaped him some significant gains. His current NetSuite equity holdings, profits from stock sales, and cumulative director's compensation total nearly $4 million, according to an analysis by Equilar.
