Andre Dawson Net Worth $15 Million
From an early age Andre was interested in baseball, and would often watch first team trainings. As he got older he started participating in those trainings, and the players would hit him ground balls. Standing fearless and not moving away from hard balls, Andre got the nickname “The Hawk”, which would follow him during his professional career.
His career started in 1975, when he was selected by the Montreal Expos as the 250th pick. The following year he made his major league debut and played in 24 games in the season. 1977 year was his breakthrough year, as he won the NL Rookie of the Year Award; he played as an outfielder and batted .282 with 19 home runs and 21 stolen bases. He played for the Expos until 1986, during which time his net worth increased to a large degree thanks to the contracts he had signed over the years. Also, he posted several records, some of which still stand, including the one for sacrifice flies (71), and he is the only player to hit 200 home runs and steal 200 bases with Montreal. While in Montreal, Andre made two All-Star appearances, and won six Golden Glove and three Silver Slugger Awards.
Following the end of the 1986 season, Andre became a free agent and sought to sign with the Chicago Cubs. However, due to Andre’s injury problems that started threatening his career, Cubs’ general manager Dallas Green wasn’t so interested. Nevertheless, Andre and his manager Dick Moss pulled a stunt, which is now derided as a “dog and pony show”; the two took a blank contract and signed it and they made an agreement with Green to a salary of $500,000 and a signing bonus of $150,000 if Andre doesn’t get hurt until the All-Star break.
Anyway, he was the NL MVP in the first season with his new team, then he won his seventh Golden Glove, and fourth Silver Slugger Award, while he was also the NL home run leader and NL RBI leader. However, from then his numbers began to decline, and before he retired in 1996, he played two seasons for the Boston Red Sox in 1993 and ‘94, and the Florida Marlins from 1995 to 1996, but without any major success.
Thanks to his generally successful career, Andre was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010.
Regarding his personal life, Andre has been married to Vanessa since 1978; the couple has two children together.
