Will started becoming known when he joined the 1984 US Olympic Team, especially as he performed well with a .429 batting average in the span of five games. He later attended Mississippi State University, where he would continue to build his skill, including the winning of the Golden Spikes Award, and being named an All-American.
In 1985, Clark joined the 1985 MLB Draft, and was selected as the second overall pick by the San Francisco Giants; this was the beginning of his rise in net worth. He made his debut with a home run, and would continue to perform well, however, an elbow injury caused him to miss 47 games. After his return, he would start to establish himself as one of the best in the first baseman position in the National League, so that he became the starting first baseman of the NL All-Star Team from 1988 to 1992. In 1989, the Giants would win the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs. This led them to the 1989 World Series which they would lose against the Oakland Athletics. A series of injuries would later diminish his performances, and his contract would end after the 1993 season.
He signed with the Texas Rangers which led to a new contract which further increased his net worth. He made the American League All-Star Team in 1994, however, injuries would again limit his playing time. He struggled in his offence but performed well in 1998 before his contract ended. The following season, he signed with the Baltimore Orioles on a two year contract however injuries continued to affect him, and so he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals where he would finally find his stride. He led the Cardinals to a win in the National League Division Series, however they lost against the New York Mets during the NLCS, and Clark would then announce his retirement, with career statistics of a .303 batting average, 284 home runs, 1205 RBI, and a .881 OPS.
Over the course of his career, Will received numerous honors including the 1991 National League Gold Glove Award at First Base, the American League All-Star, the 1989 National League Championship Series MVP, and the National League Silver Slugger Award at First base. Will has also been inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame(2006), the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame (2007), and in 2008 the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.
After his playing days, Will spent five years with the Arizona Diamondbacks as an advisor, and now works in administration for the San Francisco Giants.
For his personal life, Will has been married to Lisa since 1994, and they have a son.
