Jerry attended what today is known as Somerset Berkley Regional High School and later enrolled at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. He began his professional baseball career in 1971, when he was drafted by the California Angels. After spending four seasons in their minor league teams, in 1975 Jerry was “promoted” to Major League Baseball in 1975. These ventures provided the basis for his current net worth.

He spent the next six seasons with the Red Sox, during which he had occasional pauses due to more and more frequent injuries. In May 1984, he suffered a severe knee injury and skipped the rest of the season. In December 1985 he was released from the team, and in early 1986 he announced his retirement from professional baseball.
