What is Bill Buckner's net worth? Bill Buckner's net worth is $8 million dollars. Born in Vallejo, California, Bill Buckner played baseball and football all through high school and was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodger right after graduating. He played for two seasons with the Dodgers minor league time, the Ogden Dodgers, before playing his first game in the Majors against San Francisco. He started the 1970 season in the Majors, but was sent back to the Minor Leagues for part of the year. In 1971, he started the season with the Los Angeles Dodgers and played for them until 1976. He began playing for the Chicago Cubs in 1977, and played for the team until 1984. He proved himself to be an excellent ballplayer during his years with Cubs, emerging as a standout on the beleaguered team. He was traded to the Boston Red Sox in 1984, and his work as first basemen for the team propelled them into the top ranks of the sport. After the Boston Red Sox lost the World Series in 1986, Buckner became the focus of intense negative publicity, and floated from team to team for the next few years, eventually returning to the Red Sox. He retired in 1990.
William Joseph "Bill" Buckner (born December 14, 1949) is a former Major League Baseball first baseman. Despite winning a batting crown in 1980, representing the Chicago Cubs at the All-Star Game the following season and accumulating over 2,700 hits in his twenty-year career, he is best remembered for a fielding error during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series against the New York Mets, a play that has since been prominently entrenched into American sports lore.
Bill Buckner was born in Vallejo, California and grew up in American Canyon, California. Buckner graduated from Napa High School in 1968 after playing on the school's baseball and football teams. While playing football, he was a two-time All-State wide receiver Coaches and also achieved All-America honors twice. Buckner was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second round of the 1968 Major League Baseball Draft. His friend, Bobby Valentine, was the Dodgers' first round pick. Upon signing with the Dodgers, Buckner was assigned to the Ogden Dodgers of the Pioneer Baseball League, where he played for manager Tommy Lasorda. He also briefly attended the University of Southern California and Arizona State University and became a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity while a farmhand with the Dodgers.
After two minor league seasons, in which he batted .323, Buckner made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers as a September call-up in 1969 at the age of 19. He appeared in just one game, September 21 against the San Francisco Giants, and popped out to second baseman Ron Hunt pinch hitting for Jim Brewer in the ninth inning.
Buckner began the 1970 season with the Dodgers, but after batting just .121 with no home runs and no RBIs, he was returned to triple A Spokane. His .335 batting average with the Spokane Indians earned him a second chance, and he returned to the Dodgers when rosters expanded that September. He batted .257 in the months of September and October, with four RBIs and five runs sco
