Player Profile: Billy Ashley

Playing career: Outfielder Billy Ashley played for the Dodgers from 1992 to 1997, as well as thirteen games for the Red Sox in 1998. A minor league slugging star, he struggled to make contact in the majors, striking out in over a third of his major league at-bats, including both of his post-season ones.

Where he is now: A stay-at-home dad who helps his wife Lisa run her LA Girlfriend teen skincare line, he was one of the stars of the 2009 reality show Househusbands of Hollywood. He also is a coach for his daughter’s softball team, the Thousand Oaks Stealers.

My memories: Was aware of him when he was with the Dodgers but no specific memories.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Billy A, between Billy Armstrong, a prominent Irish politician, and Billy Argel, a graphic designer. Another prominent Billy Ashley is an account executive at Aramark Uniforms.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Asselstine.
