Fred McGriff Net Worth: Fred McGriff is a left-handed former professional baseball player who has a net worth of $30 million. Fred McGriff represented numerous Major League Baseball teams starting from the mid-1980s through to the early 2000s. As a tall, lankily-built power-hitting first baseman, the five-time All-Star, in 1992 became the first player in baseball's modern era to lead both major leagues in total home runs. While he never achieved more than37 home run hits in a single season, he still managed to end his career just 7 homers short of joining the highly exclusive 500 home run hits club. In 1995, McGriff won the World Series playing a first baseman on the Atlanta Braves. He ended his career after 10 seasons with most of them having over 30 home run hits. McGriff was born on October 31, 1963 in Tampa, Florida and first became a prospect in the early 1980?s playing in the New York Yankees minor league baseball system. He was a ninth round draft pick by the Yankees in 1981?s amateur draft and went on to sign for them on June 11, 1981. He was subsequently traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in 1982 where he became the first baseball player to hit a home run in that city's Rogers Center. McGriff's work with the American police in raising children's awareness on crime prevention has earned him the nickname, "Crime Dog", which is based on McGruff, a cartoon pooch that was specifically created for that purpose. He is currently working as an advisor in the Tampa Bay Rays' main office, as well as a co-host of The Baysball Show on the Bright House Sports Network.
Frederick Stanley McGriff (born October 31, 1963 in Tampa, Florida) is a left-handed former Major League Baseball player who played for several teams from the mid-1980s until the early 2000s. A power-hitting first baseman with a tall, lanky build, the five-time All-Star became, in 1992, the first player since the dead-ball era to lead both leagues in home runs. Although he never hit more than 37 homers in a single season, he finished his career only seven homers away from joining the exclusive 500 home run club. He won a World Series title as a first baseman with the Atlanta Braves in 1995. He currently works in the Tampa Bay Rays' front office as an advisor. He also currently works for Bright House Sports Network as a co-host for "The Baysball Show".
McGriff's nickname, "Crime Dog", is a play on McGruff, a cartoon dog created for American police to raise children's awareness on crime prevention. At first, McGriff stated he would prefer "Fire Dog" (a reference to a fire in the press-box of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium the day the Braves acquired him from the Padres; symbolically, the then-slumping Braves "caught fire" and ended up winning their division), but since has stated that he actually is fond of the "Crime Dog" nickname.

McGriff was a prospect in the New York Yankees minor league system in the early 1980s. He was drafted by the Yankees in the 9th round of the 1981 amateur draft and signed June 11, 1981. In 1982, the Yankees dealt McGriff, Dave Collins and Mike Morgan to the Toronto Blue Jays for Dale Murray and Tom Dodd.
McGriff reached the majors full-time in 1987, and slugged 34 home runs the next year, his first of seven consecutive seasons with over 30 homers. McGriff emerged as the top power hitter in the American League in 1989, as he belted 36 home runs, helping the Blue Jays win the AL East division title. His power numbers remained steady in 1990, as McGriff batted .300 and established himself as a consistent producer.
