Willie grew up in Brooklyn, New York and went to the Samuel J. Tilden High School, where he starred in baseball, so that in 1972, the Pittsburgh Pirates selected him in the 7th round of the MLB Draft.
Randolph made his professional debut in 1975, the sixth-youngest player in the National League, but after only a few months, the Pirates traded him to the New York Yankees in exchange for Doc Medich. Willie had a fantastic career with the Yankees, staying with them for 13 seasons and being their co-captain from 1986 to 1988. Randolph won two World Series with the Yankees; the first one against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1977, and then again a year later. During his stay with the team, Willie was selected to the All-Star game on five occasions, and even won the Silver Slugger Award in 1980.
The Los Angeles Dodgers signed him as a free-agent in December 1988, increasing his net worth to a large degree, and he immediately emerged as the team’s top player, having led them in battling and hitting, securing his sixth All-Star appearance in 1989. The following May, Randolph was traded to the Oakland Athletics and only a year later, he played in the World Series again, but this time losing to the Cincinnati Reds. He spent his last two seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1991 and the New York Yankees in 1992.
Two years after he retired from playing, Randolph was hired as the Yankees base and bench coach and served them until 2004, winning an additional four World Series in the process, in 1996 and then from 1998 to 2000. Willie then transferred across town, as the manager of the New York Mets, and in 2006 led them to a league’s best 97-65 record in the regular season, however, the Mets suffered a loss against the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Championship Series. In January 2007, the Mets offered him a new three-year, $5.65 million deal, but after two disappointing seasons, the Mets decided to replace him. From 2009 to 2010, Randolph coached the Milwaukee Brewers, and then the Baltimore Orioles in 2011, which also improved his net worth. Since then, he is without a job in baseball.
