The Oakland Athletics came up short again this year, losing in the divisional playoffs to the Detroit Tigers. That extends the championship drought for famed general manager Billy Beane, celebrated for eternity in the book by Michael Lewis (and played onscreen by Brad Pitt!) that described his data-driven approach to baseball.

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.
