After Beatty was released from St. Louis in 2011, he continued playing in international major leagues and now provides coaching and scouting support.
Beyond baseball, Beatty is a popular motivational speaker and life coach for children, youth, and athletes of every age. He has delivered messages on leadership, anti-bullying, goal setting, teamwork, and on creating a life of faith to numerous audiences, including the Winston-Salem Forsyth County School System, Wake Forest University Baseball team, University of Virginia Football, and others across the U.S.
He has also turned his messages, “Motivational Nuggets,” into successful singles and videos that are gaining traction on YouTube.
His new video, “Have a Good Day,” features scenes and recognizable people from Winston-Salem. In the song, Beatty introduces the “Good Day Get Down,” dance steps that simply make people feel happy.
