Wade Boggs Net Worth $28 Million
Wade Boggs was raised with two older brothers by his mother, Sue, and his father, Winfield K. Boggs; both of them were active in military service during the Korean War, so Wade lived with his family in several places, such as Puerto Rico, and Savannah, Georgia until the age of 11, when they settled down in Tampa, Florida. There, he matriculated from Plant High School, where he was very active in playing baseball and football. He decided to pursue a career in baseball, as he received a scholarship offer from the University of South Carolina.
Upon matriculation in 1976, Wade didn’t continued his studies at college, as he was selected in the seventh round of the 1976 MLB Draft by the Boston Red Sox, so he signed a contract worth $7,500. As with many players, he spent some time in minor leagues, actually for the Pawtucket Red Sox including in 1981 against the Rochester Red Wings, known for being the longest game in professional baseball history, at 33 innings. Wade finished his last season in minor league with a .335 batting average, 167 hits, and 41 doubles.
Subsequently, Wade made his debut appearance in the MLB for the Boston Red Sox in 1982, with which he signed a contract, adding a considerable amount to his net worth. In 1983, he had a .349 batting average in his rookie year, which earned him the batting title. In every season from 1983 to 1989, Wade had 200 or more hits, more than 100 runs, and more than 40 doubles. He was also selected for 12 consecutive major league All-Star Games, and during the 1986 season, he led the team to the World Series; however, they were defeated by the New York Mets. He stayed with the Red Sox until 1992, but during that season, he didn’t reached .300 batting average.
The next season, Wade began as a member of the New York Yankees, and during his time with the team from 1993 to 1997, he won two Golden Glove Awards, had three All-Star appearances, as well as four consecutive .300-plus seasons. In 1996, he led the team to win their first World Series title after 18 years. All of these accomplishments increased his net worth by a large margin.
In 1998, Wade became a part of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, with which he signed a contract for the final two seasons of his career, but stayed with the team only one season, still increasing his net worth. In 1999, he had his 3,000th hit with a home run, becoming one of only three playersto achieve that mark, alongside Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. In the same year, Wade decided to retire due to a knee injury, so he finished his 18-year old career with a .328 batting average and 3,010 hits in total.
Thanks to his accomplishments, Wade earned a number of recognitions and awards, including his election into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004, and the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005.
In his personal life, Wade Boggs has been married to Debbie Bertucelli since 1976; the couple has two children. During his professional playing career, he was known as ‘The Chicken Man’, due to his superstition – he ate chicken before every game.
