Born to a middle class family in Florida, Jones had an inclination towards baseball from an early age. As a seven year-old child, he used to play in Little League teams. Clearly, Jones’ attraction towards the sports came from his father, who at the time served as a coach in T. DeWitt Taylor High School. While he attended the same school, Jones was also already playing in local baseball teams. After graduating from high school, Jones was selected by “Atlanta Braves”. He was the first pick overall in MLB draft of 1990. Thus, he started his professional baseball career with the signing bonus of $400,000, which was the first and quite considerable step towards his ever rising wealth.

In particular, in 2000 he signed a deal of $90 million for the coming six years. Such contracts provided by the Atlanta Braves greatly contributed to his net worth.
