Nyjer Morgan Net Worth
Nyjer Morgan net worth: Nyjer Morgan is a Major League Baseball outfielder who has a net worth of $1 million. Also known by his popular nickname "Tony Plush," he has earned his net worth largely by playing for a total of three MLB teams: The Pittsburgh Pirates, the Washington Nationals, and the Milwaukee Brewers. One of Morgan's first big plays in baseball came on September 14th, 2007, when he made a catch that sent the Pirates to a 4 to 3 victory against the Brewers, earning him the attention of many baseball fans for the first time. One of those baseball fans who noticed this catch was more than just a fan, butnone other than Houston Astros manager Cecil Cooper, who was reported to have said of the catch, simply but truthfully: "That's probably the best catch I've seen this year." The catch has also invited comparison's to Willy Mays' much more famous famous "The Catch," most notably on the ESPN sports news program SportsCenter. Since this auspicious beginning, Morgan's star in the sport of baseball has continued to rise, but he hasn't been free from controversy over the course of his Major League Baseball career. For example, one troubling incident took place on May 23rd, 2010, when Morgan reacted angrily to a missed ball by tossing his glove to the side and storming off the field. He's also courted controversy in the way that many professional athletes do so – through his Twitter account, which he often uses to taunt his fellow players.
In November 2011, a former girlfriend of Nyjer's by the name of Jordana Lenz began appearing as a cast member of the new VH1 reality show Baseball Wives. Jordana Lenz has been described by fans and viewers of the show as rude, bitchy, flirtatious and a gold digger. She and Nyjer dated for a little over a year.
