Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter had successful MLB careers with the New York Yankees, team with which they were titled World Series champions in the 2009 season. In addition, both are part of the 3,000 hit club and collect an extensive showcase of achievements that led them to have juicy contracts in their respective careers.
Jeter, who is inducted into the Hall of Fame, was Rookie of the Year in the 1996 season, attended 14 All-Star Games; classic in which he had the honor of being the MVP on one occasion. The shortstop collected five Gold Gloves and an equal number of Silver Bats and five Major League Baseball championships, with an MVP award. A brilliant resume, for the American.
For its part, A-Rod was selected to the All-Star Game 14 times, had three Major League Baseball MVP trophies, 10 Silver Bats, two Gold Gloves, a batting title and a World Series champion trophy, in addition to three accolades such as the Major League Baseball Player of the Year.
However, although Jeter had a career of more sporting achievements than Rodríguez, he does not have more money than the current shareholder of the Minnesota Timberwolves, since he accumulates a net worth of $ 350 million for $ 200 that the CEO of the Miami Marlins, as detailed by the Celebrity Networth website.
Rodríguez earned about $ 475 million in salaries, bonuses and sports sponsorships, being part of lucrative advertising campaigns for fast food chain McDonalds.
For his part, Jeter had a series of lucrative endorsement deals with companies like Nike, Gatorade, Discover Card, and VISA, but they didn’t generate as much profit as Rodriguez did by posting $ 150 million in his career. Two virtuosos in both sport and business.
