Bobby Valentine was a son of Joseph and Grace Valentine, and went to the Rippowam High School in Stamford before he continued his education at the University of Nebraska, Duke University, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of Southern California. While at college, Valentine excelled in both baseball and American Football, so that in the 1968 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft, the Los Angeles Dodgers selected him as the 5th pick overall.

Bobby debuted for the LA Dodgers in 1969, but he was assigned to the Spokane Indians in 1970, after which he returned to the Dodgers and stayed there until 1972. From 1973 to 1975, Valentine played for the California Angels and was a regular starter there, but in 1973 he suffered a multiple leg fracture and never regained his speed even after recovery. After the 1975 season had finished, the Angels traded Valentine to the San Diego Padres, where he stayed until 1977, then spent the next two years playing for the New York Mets, while he ended his professional career with the Seattle Mariners in 1979, retiring at the age of 29.

Bobby began his managerial career with the Texas Rangers in 1985 and served as their manager until 1992. Three years later, he moved to Japan and became the manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines, before returning to the US In 1996, and taking charge at the New York Mets, leading them to the 2000 World Series, where their city rivals the New York Yankees defeated them in five games. In 2002, Valentine won the Branch Rickey Award, but at the end of that season, he finished his stint with the Mets, from 2004 to 2009 managing the Chiba Lotte Marines for the second time in his career, but now he won the Japan and Asia Series.

Upon his return to the US, Valentine began working as a broadcaster at ESPN and covered the 2009 American and National League Championship Series, and World Series as well. In December 2011, Bobby became the manager of the Boston Red Sox, but they fired him in October 2012 after an horrendous 69–93 season. Valentine proceeded to distance himself from baseball, and since February 2013, has served as the athletic director at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut.
