Robin is the son of John and his wife Darlene Ventura, of part-Portuguese and Italian ancestry. He went to Righetti High School, located in Orcutt, California, where he started playing baseball. After matriculation he enrolled at Oklahoma State University, where he continued to play baseball, and left his mark at the university with the record of a 58-game hitting streak, having begun with 107 runs and 96 RBI in his freshman year. Thanks to his successful plays, he was rewarded with the Dick Howser Trophy and Golden Spikes Award, both in 1988.

Following his successful college career, Robin declared for the 1988 MLB Draft, and was selected as the 10th overall pick by the Chicago White Sox. Before making his MLB debut, Robin played at AA Birmingham for a major part of the 1989 season, before being brought into the Chicago White Sox major league squad. He didn’t have much success in his rookie season, making 25 errors among other negative statistics. Nevertheless, the following season he had one of his best with 100 runs batted in, setting the franchise record for RBI by a third baseman. His overall performance earned him his first Gold Glove Award, which he won again in 1992 and 1993. He played for the White Sox until the end of the 1998 season, when his contract expired. Before the end of the contract, Robin and White Sox’ front office had several contract disputes, and as a result he became a free agent.

He wasn’t long without engagement as the New York Mets picked him, up offering him a four-year contract which Robin accepted, and in the first season with his new team, had his career high in RBI with 120, 32 home runs, and .301 batting average, which earned him his fourth Gold Glove award. Robin played for the Mets until 2001 when he moved to the New York Yankees in a trade for David Justice, but spent only two seasons with the Yankees – in the first season with the Yankees, Robin posted 93 RBI, which was his eighth season to go over the 90 RBI mark. However, the next season saw him struggling to reach constant form, and as a result he was traded in 2003 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He retired at the end of 2004 season, after an unsuccessful season with the Dodgers and nagging arthritis in his right ankle.

During his career, Robin had several notable games, including one in which he hit two grand slams.

Aside from successful team career, he played with the USA national team and won the gold medal in the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul.

His arthritis continued to trouble him long after his retirement, and he had to undergo an ankle allograft in order to recover; for quite some time he walked with a cane.

His managerial career was nowhere near as successful as his playing career; it lasted only four years and in those four years, the White Sox finished the season with a negative score, forcing Robin to resign.

He also tried himself as a color commentator, and was appointed for the College World Series, while during 2010, he worked for the Little League Southwest Region Finals on ESPN as a color commentator with Carter Blackburn.

Regarding his personal life, Robin has been married to Stephanie Hebard since 1990; the couple has four children together.

Mikey Teutul Net Worth



Michael Joseph was born 26 November 1978, in Montgomery, New York State USA, and widely known as Mikey Teutul, is a reality television personality, the youngest son of Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul, Sr. Mikey began his working life at 14, in the family business.

So just how rich is Mikey Teutul, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Mikey has a net worth of over $3 million dollars, largely earned  by working at his father’s and older brother Paul Jr,’s company Orange County Choppers (OCC), and Orange County Iron Works, and through his TV appearances.

Mikey Teutul Net Worth $3 Million

Little is known of Mikey’s early life or education – it seems to have always revolved around the family business. Helping out his family in his teens, theoretically he worked as Assistant General Manager. but his main duties were to answer ‘phones, and clear-up and take out the trash. He was on rare occasions given the chance to build bikes, until he was competent to build his own. He also attended events for promoting OCC.

In 2002, the family was invited to take part in a reality show, Discovery Channel’s “American Chopper”, and subsequently “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior”, in the course of which the youngest son was thrown out of the business – the middle son is Daniel, and younger sister Cristin. The reason for Mikey’s exclusion was  that Mikey tried to be a mediator between his father and his brother, but his father seemed to be offended that his younger son did not take his side, and so threw him out of the business. During the filming of the show, Mikey was somethoing of a comedy relief to his father’s workers, and that comedy streak helped gain him popularity in TV shows. Mikey then joined his brother’s post-OCC venture, -Paul Jr  Designs – along with most of their father’s employees; obviously the work atmosphere with Paul Teutul, Sr. was not a particularly happy one. Mikey’s eldest brother Paul  Jr. was the former chief fabricator of OCC.

So actually the main source of Mikey Teutul’s wealth is not his father’s business, but the shows he eventually took part in. These have included ‘The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, and also “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. The shows became very popular and Mikey’s appearances earned him a significant amount of money. To say the least, the family drama did not go without consequences – according to rumours, Mikey Teutul was suffering from an addiction problem, and consequently admitted himself to rehab, and managed to overcome the bad habits which were apparently hindering his progress in life, obviously including business.

In his life away from the businesses already referred to and the limelight of TV, Michael loves to paint, and is apparently respected for his productions, as he opened “The Wolfgang Gallery” gallery in Montgomery, New York, where he has sold or auctioned his paintings, adding somewhat to is net worth, although rumours suggest that the gallery may now be closed. Most recently, Mikey is now trying to enter the market under the moniker LLC FarQueue Products with his line of gourmet pasta sauces. Good luck, Mikey!

In his less-than-private personal life, Mikey is apparently still single – there aren’t even any rumours of romantic liaisons.
