Al Leiter Net Worth $34 million
Leiter grew up in Berkeley Township, New Jersey, along with his five brothers, all of whom were baseball players. There he attended Central Regional High School, where he was selected for the Wilson First All-American team.
In 1984 he was selected in the second round by the New York Yankees in the MLB Draft, and as usual played in minor leagues before making his MLB debut as the team’s starting pitcher in 1987. Two years later he was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, and shortly afterwards underwent arthroscopic surgery which affected his statistics in the following few seasons. His team won the World Series in 1992, and Leiter’s performance improved in the following year, enabling him to play in the Jays second World Series win the following year. In 1996 Leiter became a free agent, but his tenure with the Yankees and Jays had greatly added to his net worth.
In 1996 he joined the Florida Marlins, further improving his wealth. After pitching a no-hitter in a game against the Colorado Rockies, which was the first in the team’s history, he was selected to his first All-Star game, capturing a National League win. The following year he helped the team to win the World Series; his popularity was significantly boosted.
However, in 1998 Leiter was traded to the New York Mets, helping his new team to capture the win against the Cincinnati Reds for the National League Wild Card spot in 1999, bringing the Mets to the playoffs for the first time in 11 years. He made the All-Star team in 2000, and reached the World Series; although his team didn’t win, Leiter had given an impressive season performance, defeating all 30 MLB teams, the first pitcher to achieve so. During his seven-season tenure with the Mets, Leiter recorded 95–67 with a 3.42 ERA, adding steadily to his net worth.
Becoming a free agent in 2004, he signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Florida Marlins, which considerably increased his fortune. However, Leiter’s second stint with the team wasn’t as successful as the first, and a year later he joined the New York Yankees, achieving modest success. Although he signed a minor league deal with the team in 2006, he decided to retire from professional baseball.
In the meantime, he had been involved in television broadcasting, working as a pitchers’ analyst for FOX, and a studio analyst for ESPN, so in 2006, Yes Network hired him as their color commentator and studio analyst. He then began working as a studio analyst for the MLB Network in 2009, and eventually in 2016, as the Marlins game analyst for Fox Sports.
Leiter’s broadcasting career has enabled him to reinforce his popularity achieved in baseball, and to earn a National Sports Emmy Award Nomination for Studio Analyst, and three Sports Emmys for Outstanding Studio Show-Daily MLB Tonight Segment Producer, and adding to his net worth.
When it comes to his personal life, Leiter is married to Lori Leiter, with whom he has four children.
The former player has been involved in charities, and has earned a number of MLB philanthropic awards, such as the Roberto Clemente Award and the Branch Rickey Award.
