Jim Leyland net worth: Jim Leyland is an American former Major League Baseball manager who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Jim Leyland was born in Perrysburg, Ohio, and began his professional baseball career playing on the Detroit Tigers Minor League team in the 60s. He also coached the Montgomery Rebels. In 1985, he became the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and spent the next ten years with the team. He was named National League Manager of the year in 1990 and 1992, while with the team. He became the Manager for the Florida Marlins in 1997, and led them to their first World Series victory. He left the franchise in 1998, after almost the entire team was sold or traded to other organizations. He spent one season with the Colorado Rockies, before signing on as Manager for his first team, the Detroit Tigers in 2006. He was named American League Manager of the Year in 2006, and went on to lead the team through 2013, when he stepped down.
James Richard "Jim" Leyland (born December 15, 1944) is a former Major League Baseball manager.
He led the Florida Marlins to a World Series championship in 1997, and previously won three straight division titles (1990, 1991, and 1992) with the Pittsburgh Pirates. With the Tigers' victory in the 2006 American League Championship Series, Leyland became the seventh manager in history to win pennants in both the National and American Leagues. He is a three-time Manager of the Year Award winner, twice in the National League (1990 and 1992), and once in the American League (2006).
Leyland began his baseball career with the Tigers when they signed him as a catcher on September 21, 1963. He spent seven seasons as a minor leaguer in the Tigers organization (1964???1970), but mainly served as a coach with the Montgomery Rebels in 1970 while playing in just two games for the team. Leyland was a career .222 hitter in the minor leagues.
Leyland left the Tigers organization for the first time in 1982 when he became Tony La Russa's third base coach for four seasons (1982???85) with the Chicago White Sox, including the team's 1983 AL West division title, before being named the 33rd manager in Pittsburgh Pirates history on November 20, 1985.
Leyland was the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1986 to 1996. He won two Manager of the Year trophies with the Pirates in 1990 and 1992, and finished as runner-up in 1988 and 1991. Leyland helped develop such All-Stars as Barry Bonds, Jay Bell, Tim Wakefield, Andy Van Slyke and Bobby Bonilla in Pittsburgh before a fire sale in the mid-1990s soured him with new ownership. Under Leyland, the Pirates went to the National League Championship Series in three straight seasons (1990, 1991, and 1992). The Pirates lost all three of those NLCS, however, with the latter two going the full seven games against the Atlanta Braves.
Although he has moved on in his career, Leyland still keeps his home in the Pittsburgh suburb of Mt. Lebano
