one more tidbit....While on a Major League roster, he leaves the dug out, while in Uniform, enters the Front Office" at the Stadium and tells them he does not want to play, he wants to be an advance Scout

another hint, it ain't Travis Jewett

Good call, MBA! Former Mets prospect Billy Beane. Not to be confused with Billy Bean, whom he played with in the minor leagues.
