Kirby Puckett was born in Illinois and has an estimated net worth of $3 million dollars. A professional baseball player, Kirby Puckett played twelve seasons for the Minnesota Twins and set multiple records as a Twins player that have not been broken. He was a 10 time All-Star selection among other honors. He passed away from a stroke in 2006.
Kirby Puckett (March 14, 1960 - March 6, 2006) was an American Major League Baseball center fielder. He played his entire 12-year baseball career with the Minnesota Twins (1984-1995) and is the Twins franchise's all-time leader in career hits, runs, doubles, and total bases. At the time of his retirement, his .318 career batting average was the highest by any right-handed American League batter since Joe DiMaggio.
Puckett was the fourth baseball player during the 20th century to record 1,000 hits in his first five full calendar years in Major League Baseball, and was the second to record 2,000 hits during his first ten full calendar years. After being forced to retire at age 35 due to loss of vision in one eye from a central retinal vein occlusion, Puckett was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001 in his first year of eligibility.
Puckett was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Robert Taylor Homes, a housing project on Chicago's South Side (the escape from which he frequently referred back to during his career). He attended and played baseball for Calumet High School. After receiving no scholarship offers following graduation, Puckett at first went to work on an assembly line for Ford Motor Company. However he was given a chance to attend Bradley University and was a star on the baseball team, despite his under-sized 5' 8" frame, before the Minnesota Twins selected him in the 1st round (3rd pick) of the 1982 MLB Draft.
After signing with the team, he was assigned to the rookie-league Elizabethton Twins in the Appalachian League where he immediately showed why the Twins considered him so highly, hitting .382, with 3 home runs, 35 RBI, and 43 steals, in only 65 games, albeit against predominantly younger players. In 1983, Puckett was promoted to the Single-A Visalia Oaks in the California League and although his average was not as high as the previous year-he still hit an impressive .318, with 9 home runs, 97 RBI, and 48 stolen bases over 138 game
