Milton Bradley is the son of Milton Bradley, Sr., who was a veteran of the Vietnam War, and Charlena Rector, who worked as a clerk, and was raised with four half-siblings in his hometown by a single mother, as his father left them when he was a baby. Milton started playing baseball while he attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School, where one of his teammates was future baseball star Chase Utley.

Upon matriculation, he did not enroll in California State University, Long Beach in order to pursue career as a professional baseball player. Milton was selected in the 1996 MLB Draft in the second round by the Montreal Expo, which marked the beginning of his net worth, however, he spent four years playing for teams in minor leagues, until he made his debut in the major league for the Expos in July of 2000 in the game against the New York Mets. In that season, he appeared in 42 games and had a .221 batting average and 15 RBIs. In the 2001-2002 season, Milton appeared in 67 games, including entering 15 top innings.

In 2001 he was traded to the Cleveland Indians, and in his first season there, Milton played in 10 games, and 30 games for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons in the minor league. In the following year, he was disabled with an injury, but after rehabilitation he returned, and finished the season with a .249 batting average and 38 RBIs, which potentially added a considerable amount to his net worth. However, he signed just a one-year contract worth $1.73 million, after which he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Andrew Brown and Franklin Gutiérrez.

So, he began the 2004-2005 season as a part of the Dodgers, where he made a lot of on-field troubles which resulted in suspensions. Anyway, Milton finished the season with a .267 batting average, 67 RBIs, 19 home runs, but was also caught stealing bases 11 times, after which he was traded to the Oakland Athletics together with Antonio Pérez, for Andre Ethier. He participated with the team at the 2006 American League Championship Series in the game against the Detroit Tigers, when he hit home runs from each side of the plate in a postseason game, becoming the third player in the MLB history to achieve it, increasing further his net worth.

In 2007, Milton was traded to the San Diego Padres, and the following year he spent with the Texas Rangers, when he was named an MLB All-Star. To speak further, in 2009 he signed a contract worth $30 million over the next three years with the Chicago Cubs, which contributed a lot to his wealth, but he started the next season as a member of the Seattle Mariners, and then in 2011, he finished his professional career.

Regarding his personal life, Milton Bradley was married to Monique Bradley from 2005 until her death in 2013. The couple had two sons together, of who he now has custody. However, presently he has to serve 32-month sentence, as he was found guilty of numerous charges of domestic violence, not directly connected with his wife’s death.
