Bruce Bochy spent one part of his childhood with two siblings in his hometown, where his father, Sgt. Major Gus Bochy, was in the US Army. The family moved to the Panama Canal Zone, South Carolina, and Melbourne, Florida, where he attended Melbourne High School, and began playing baseball in the school team. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Brevard Community College, studying for two years, and where he continued to play baseball, winning a state championship in 1975. Afterwards, he transferred to play baseball for coach Eddie Stanky at South Alabama.
During the same year, Bruce turned pro when he was selected in the 1975 MLB Draft in the first round as the 24th overall pick by the Houston Astros, so he signed a rookie contract, which marked the beginning of his net worth. He made his first team debut in 1978, and stayed with the Astros until 1980. Two years later, he played for the New York Mets for a season, and from 1983 to 1987 for the San Diego Padres. In 1984, he won his and the team’s first NL pennant, and appeared in a game during the World Series Championship in the same year. In 1987, he made his last appearance with the Padres and his playing career was finished.
Bruce became a manager for the Padres’ minor league system, and started his managing career in the 1989 season with the the Class-A Riverside Red Wave, after which he led the Short-Season Class-A Spokane Indians to win a championship for the third time. The Red Wave finished next season with a 64-78 record, then the following year they became the High Desert Mavericks and won the California League title. In 1992, he began to manage the Double-A Wichita Wranglers and they won the Texas League title, which added a lot to his net worth.
In 1993, Bruce was hired by the San Diego Padres as their third-base coach under Jim Riggleman. After the departure of Jim, Bruce became the new manager in 1995, and the youngest one in the National League. During his tenure with the Padres, they won their second National League West division title in 1996, which earned him the National League Manager of the Year Award, and two years later, the team won the National League pennant, and they participated in the 1998 World Series, after which they didn’t have any major success until 2005 and 2006, when Bruce led them to compete for the NL West titles, although they were defeated by the St. Louis Cardinals. Thus, his tenure was over in 2006, with a record of 951 wins and 975 losses. At the same time, he also managed in the MLB Japan All-Star Series in 2004 and 2006, which also added a considerable amount to his wealth.
Bruce became the new manager of the San Francisco Giants in 2007, signing a contract which increased his net worth by a large margin. In 2010, the Giants won their first NL West title, defeating the Padres, and went on to win the World Series Championship, then winning it two more times – in 2012 and 2014. In the 2015 season, he became the 16th manager with the record of 1,700 victories. Most recently, the Giants won the National League Wild Card in 2016.
If to talk about his personal life, Bruce Bochy has been married to Kim Seib since 1978; the couple has two sons – Greg and Brett – both of them playing baseball; Brett was drafted in 2010 by the San Francisco Giants, so his father is his manager.
