Athletics | Billy Beane to attend Oscars

Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane will be at the Oscars in person Feb. 26 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Actor Brad Pitt was nominated for an Academy Award as best actor for his portrayal of Beane in the film Moneyball. "I'm going," Beane said. "It will be fun. I'm excited for Brad, and I know how much time and effort he put into it. Of course, absolutely I'm rooting for him. Not me. It's got nothing to do with me. It's all about Brad. He's a great guy, and I do want him to win for his sake, not for me. He's the one who put himself on the line."
