Bret is the son of former major league player and manager Bob Boone and his wife Susan. He has a brother, Aaron, who is also a retired baseball player. His father him and his brother influenced a lot, but also Bret and Aaron started on their own to hang out in the Phillies clubhouse with Pete Rose Jr., who also became a baseball player, then Ryan Luzinski, and Mark McGraw.

Bret went to El Dorado High School, and after matriculation enrolled at the University of Southern California. He played baseball for the USC Trojans, but after only one year, he declared for the MLB Draft, and was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the fifth round, so signing his first professional contract, which started his net worth.

Bret made history the moment he stepped on to the field as he became a third-generation big-leaguer, the first-ever since his father Bob, and his grandfather Ray also played baseball.

In his rookie season for the Mariners, Bret posted four homeruns, but then in 1993 he set the team record for most homeruns scored by a second baseman with 12. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to stop his trade to the Cincinnati Reds, where he stayed until 1998, and won his first Golden Glove Award that year, while also receiving his first All-Star game invitation, thanks to his improving performance.

After the Reds, he played one year for the Atlanta Braves and the San Diego Padres, only to return to the Mariners in 2001. He stayed in Seattle for the next four years, and played his best baseball, earning his second and third All-Star game appearances, while also winning three Golden Gloves in consecutive years from 2002 to 2004. Also, he won two Silver Slugger Awards in 2001 and 2003, while in 2001 he was the AL RBI leader. Then in 2005 he was traded to the Minnesota Twins, who released him just after 14 games, due to his poor performance.

He decided to retire that year, but in 2006 he signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets, but didn’t make an MLB appearance. He then retired again, stating that he lacked passion for the game. However, that wasn’t the end of his career as in 2008 he signed a minor league contract with the Washington Nationals. Unfortunately, he just wasn’t good enough for the major league squad, and announced his retirement again.

He started his managerial career in 2010, assuming the position at the Victoria Seals that compete in the Golden Baseball League, but after only four games, it was announced by the club’s officials that Bret was leaving the team for good, due to family matters, without elaboration.

Regarding his personal life, Bret has been married to Suzi with whom he has two children, daughter Savannah Boone, and son Jacob Boone.
