Although a native of Illinois, Robin grew up in California where he attended Woodland Hills’ William Howard Taft High School. His professional baseball career began when he was drafted as the pick No. 3 on the 1973 Major League Baseball draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. His professional debut occurred in April 1974. After several years of constant improvement of his batting skills, in 1980 he was selected for his first MLB All Star Game and was honored with a Silver Slugger Award. This whole Brewers’ involvement provided the basis for Robin Yount’s net worth.

At the end of the 1982 season, which happened to be the breakthrough season in Yount’s career, he was the league’s leader with 210 hits which earned him not only a Gold Glove Award but another All Star appearance and another Silver Slugger Award. In addition to all these, Robin was also named as the Most Valuable Player of the season, and led his team to their only World Series appearance in the franchise’s history. It is certain that all these accomplishments dramatically boosted the total revenues of Robin Yount, significantly increasing his overall fortune.

In 1989, Yount was honored with his second Most Valuable Player Award and signed a three-year extension contract with the Brewers with a total worth of $9.6 million. In October 1993 he played his last game before announcing his retirement from professional playing. In the following year, the Milwaukee Brewers retired his jersey No. 19, while in 1995 Robin Yount was inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame. Doubtlessly, all these achievements helped Yount to further enhance his fame as well as his wealth in total.

During his 19 year-long playing career, Robin Yount set several franchise records of which some are still unbeaten. He scored 251 home runs, averaging .285 at-bat including 1632 runs and 11,008 at-bats. With these rather impressive statistics, Yount has been ranked at No. 17 on the Major League’s all-time hit chart. In 1999 he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Although retired from playing, Robin Yount has still been active in the world of baseball – between 2002 and 2004 he served as Diamondbacks’ first coach while in 2005 he was appointed as Brewers’ third coach. Since 2014, he serves as its bench coach and spring training special instructor.

When it comes to his personal life, Robin Yount has been married since 1979 to his high school sweetheart Michelle Edelstein, also the mother of his four children. Apart from baseball, Yount is also an avid motorsports enthusiast.
