Josh Hamilton net worth and salary: Josh Hamilton is an American baseball player who has a net worth of $40 million. Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, Josh Hamilton played baseball for his high school, Athens Drive, before being drafted in 1999. He played successfully in the minor league system throughout 2000, but then his problems began. After being injured in a car accident in 2001, he became addicted to drugs and alcohol, and his addiction issues would plague him for the next few seasons. After appearing late to practices and games repeatedly, he was dropped, and from 2004 to 2006, he stopped playing baseball and focused on getting his personal life in order. He returned to the minor leagues in 2006, and finally made his professional league debut in 2007, playing for the Cincinnati Reds. He played well during his first season, though he was out for part of the season with injuries, and was traded to the Texas Rangers in 2008. More recently he has been playing in the outfield for the Anaheim Angels. His wife, Katie Chadwick Hamilton, is the daughter of Michael Chadwick, who guided him in his recovery from drugs and alcohol abuse for several years. They started dating in 2002 when he returned to Raleigh, and the couple married in 2004. Katie has a daughter, Julia Shea, from a previous relationship, and together she and Hamilton have three daughters, Sierra Elise, Michaela Grace, and Stella Faith. They have had a foundation, Triple Play Ministries, since 2008 and through their charity, built an orphanage in Uganda. The couple appeared on Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County and during the season, ended up relapsing with cocaine. Just prior to the season airing on Bravo, Josh filed for divorce.
