David Wells Net Worth $20 million
David attended Point Loma High School and matriculated in 1982. He spent a lot of the time in the gym, specifically the Ocean Beach Recreation Center as well as Robb Field.
Wells made his MLB debut in 1987 as part of the Toronto Blue Jays, but had to wait until he was 30 years old to become a full time starter. He played six seasons with the Blue Jays and was part of the 1992 World Series winning team. During spring training in 1993 he was released, and then signed with the Detroit Tigers, becoming one of the top pitchers of the team; in 1995 he made his first All-Star Game appearance. His net worth was starting to increase at this point.
However, he was then traded to the Cincinnati Reds later in the 1995 season, and at the end of the season he was traded again, to the Baltimore Orioles. During his time with the team he would pitch a career high 224 innings. In 1997 he signed with the New York Yankees, and would perform well in the Yankees’ record setting season in the following year; he was third in the Cy Young Award voting, and had an 18-4 record, including pitching just the 15th perfect game in baseball history, and almost recorded a second perfect game later in the season.
In 1999, David returned to the Blue Jays and would play there for the next two years. He was then traded to the Chicago White Sox, but struggled due to back problems. He returned to the Yankees and posted a great 19-7 record in 2002, so his net worth continued to increase, plus he then released his autobiography “Perfect I’m not: Boomer on Beer, Brawls, Backaches, and Baseball”, some contents proving to be controversial. However, he continued to pitch well for the team and got his 200th career win in 2003.
In 2004, he signed a one year contract with the San Diego Padres, and would then sign a two year deal with the Boston Red Sox. After a rocky start, he went on to perform well again with a 15-7 record. In 2006, he returned to the San Diego Padres, then in 2007 was signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He made his first multi-hit game at 44 years old, but then moved on to free agency. He announced that his pitching career was over the following year.
In 2009, Wells began working for “MLB on TBS” and became the host of “The Cheap Seats”. He was appointed assistant baseball coach at his alma mater Point Loma High School, becoming the head coach in 2014 – the team’s home field was renamed as the David Wells Field.
For his personal life, it is known that David has been married to Nina Fisher since 2000, and they have two sons. He resides in San Diego with his family. He is also a big fan of Babe Ruth and even has a tattoo of him.
