Billy worked in the cotton industry for many years before opening the first indoor batting practice in Lubbock, Scott’s Batting Practice. Billy then opened Scott’s Tees where he built lifelong memories with Tech students and student-athletes. After retiring Billy couldn’t sit still and began “crafting” bird houses and other things from just about anything he could find. He then retired from crafting to stay at home and enjoy his family.
