Young attended Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente, California, and went on to enroll at the University of California in Santa Barbara. He was selected to play for the Baltimore Orioles in 1994, but didn’t sign the contract. Three years later, he was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1997 MLB Draft, and made his Orioles debut in the New York–Penn League. He played the 1998 season with the Hagerstown Suns of the South Atlantic League on second base, and spent the following season with Dunedin Blue Jays. In 2000, he was traded to the Texas Rangers, and made his debut for the Rangers in the same year, playing two games and two at-bats. In the 2001 season, he played in 106 games scoring 49 RBI and 96 hits, then in 2002 156 matches, where he had 77 runs and the 63 RBI. His results were improving during the 2003 season, and in 2004 signed a new contract and moved to shortstop, replacing Alex Rodriguez. Young was second in the American League with 690 at bats and 216 in hits. The next season was successful for Michael as well, and won the American League batting title in 2005 with .331. Young was placed high in the MLB as well, as he had scored 221 in hits, had a career-high record of home runs with 24, and was placed second in the American League in RBI with 91.

Alongside his Rangers teammate Mark Teixeira, Young was selected for the 2006 World Baseball Classic. In 2007, Michael signed an $80 million-worth contract that would keep him on the team until 2013. In the same year, he finished the season with a batting average of .315, which led his team into 11th place in the American League. In 2008, his skills won him the Golden Glove, an annual award given to the Major League Baseball players with outstanding performances. However, in 2009, he was moved onto the position of third base without his consent, resulting in Young requesting a trade, but he eventually cancelled the demand. In 2010, he became the Rangers’ leader in hits, and as of 2011, Michael made his 2,000th hit, and finished off the season batting .338, third in the American League.

Michael was then traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for the 2013 season, but in the same year he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, appearing 21 times and scored a .314 average. Michael announced his retirement on January 31, 2014, however, he was immediately hired as a special assistant for Jon Daniels, general manager of the Texas Rangers.

In his personal life, Young is married to Cristina Barbosa. The couple has three sons together. Michael is widely recognized for his charity work and philanthropy. He and his wife are the sponsors of the Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer campaign. In 2016, they established the Michael Young Family Foundation focused on making donations to cultural, educational and humanitarian services.
