What is Moisés Alou's Net Worth?

Moises Alou is a Dominican-American retired professional baseball player who has a net worth of $40 million. Moises Alou played for seven teams over the course of his 17-year MLB career as one of the best hitters and outfielders in the game.

Early Life

Moisés Rojas-Alou Beltré was born on July 3, 1966, in Atlanta, Georgia, to a baseball family. The son of former MLB outfielder and manager, Felipe Alou, as well as the nephew of Jesus and Matty Alou and a cousin of Mel Rojas, it was ironic that growing up Moises was more interested in playing basketball during his youth. Moises showed no interest in playing organized baseball until he attended Canada College in Redwood City, California at the age of 18. It was at Canada College that baseball scouts were drawn to the future Babe Ruth Award recipient, among many other awards.

MLB Career

The Dominican-American outfielder played for 17 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Montreal Expos, Florida Marlins, Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, and New York Mets which amounted to 1,942 career games. During his early years with the Montreal Expos from 1992 to 1996, he was managed by his father Felipe and later on again with the Giants from 2005 to 2006. Encompassing a batting average of .303 with 2,134 hits, 421 doubles, 332 home runs scored, 1,287 runs batted in, and 102 stolen bases, he obtained the status as a five-tool player and is considered by many in the baseball world to be one of the best outfielders to play the game in the 1990s and 2000s. He's among a select few baseball players that batted without using batting gloves. When asked about this, he revealed that during baseball season he urinated on his hands to toughen them up.

Moises Alou was a six-time All-Star (1994, 1997, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2005) and two-time Silver Slugger Award winner (1994, 1998). He became a World Series champion in 1997 when the Florida Marlins beat the Cleveland Indians in seven games.
