Ted went to Yosemite High School, located in Oakhurst, California, and after matriculation enrolled at Fresno City College. During his college years, Ted played baseball for the Fresno City College Rams, then declared for the 1996 MLB Draft. He was selected only in the 23rd round of the draft by the Los Angeles Draft, but was sent to minor league affiliate clubs, and never got to wear the Dodgers jersey as he was traded to the Montreal Expos in 1998, alongside Wilton Guerrero, Jonathan Tucker, and Peter Bergeron, in exchange for Carlos Pérez, Mark Grudzielanek, and Hiram Bocachica.
He made his debut for the Expos in 1999, and played in nine games during his rookie season, making 28 strikeouts. He was then traded to the New York Yankees where he played until 2002, having a breakthrough season in 2001 with 112 strikeouts in the 26 games that he played. Ted was then sent to the Oakland Athletics in 2002, appearing only in two games of the season, but then in 2003 he had his career high in game appearances with 32, starting 31 games and scoring 12 wins and 10 lost games with 147 strikeouts. Following the successful season, he was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays where he continued to play well, starting in 32 games and increasing the number of strikeouts to 168. Thanks to his successful plays, he made it to the All-Star game for the first time in his career, and boosted his net worth.
He became a free agent in 2006, and joined the Chicago Cubs on a $40 million worth contract over four years, which increased his wealth by a large degree. He had his best career season in 2008 when he posted 184 strikeouts in 34 starts, and the next year played in his second All-Star game. He stayed with the Cubs one more season before he was sent to the Los Angeles Dodgers, signing a contract worth $33 million over three years, however, his game performance began to decline, mostly due to chronic injuries, and in 2013 he was released by the franchise. Deciding not to retire just yet, he signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants, but that didn’t last long, as he and the Giants front office couldn’t agree on all details.
Avoiding imminent retirement, Ted tried himself in the Venezuela Winter League, but his injuries persisted, and he announced his retirement in November 2013.
In March following year Ted was named as a special assistant at the Chicago Cubs, which also contributed to his wealth.
Regarding his personal life, Ted is married to Natasha – a veterinarian – with whom he has a son together, Theodore Roosevelt IV, born in 2010. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Lilly family are animal rights activists, and are part of several organizations that help animals. They reside in Oakhurst, California.
Back in 2015, Ted had legal problems; he was caught in a vehicle insurance fraud, and had to pay $2,500, also receiving 250 hours of community service as a part of his bargain plea.
