- Recently immortalized in the film Moneyball by actor Chris Pratt, Scott Hatteberg has been a hot topic lately. Also featured in the film briefly, is Scott Hatteberg's wife 'Bitsy' Hatteberg. After spending 11 years with the Red Sox, Scott Hatteberg found himself without a team and unable to make the throw from home plate, thanks to nerve damage in his elbows. As seen in Moneyball, the Oakland A's and Billy Beane coming calling with a contract offer for Scott, with one caveat: he needs to move to first base, a position that he had never played before. Elizabeth Hatteberg helped her husband to learn the new position by hitting him ground balls off of a tee on a tennis court near their house. "I gave her a long, skinny bat and had her hit off a tee so I could work on my footwork", Scott told reporters of the practice.
- Resume: While Scott was with the Red Sox, Bitsy Hatteberg helped to organize the Red Sox wives' cookbook, along with Stacey Beck, wife of former Red Sox pitcher Rod Beck.
- Hometown: After playing a few more seasons with the A's and the Reds, Scott Hatteberg and his wife Bitsy now live in Gig Harbor, Washington with their three daughters, Lauren, Sophia, and Ella.
