Orel Leonard Hershiser IV was born on the 16th September 1958, in Buffalo, New York State USA, and is a former professional baseball player, who played as pitcher in the MLB for 18 seasons and five different teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1983 to 1994. Hershiser won the World Series in 1988 and was invited to three All-Star games (1987-1989). His career started in 1983, and ended in 2000.

Have you ever wondered how rich Orel Hershiser is, as of mid- 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Hershiser net worth is as high as $20 million, earned largely through his career as a professional baseball player. In addition, Hershiser has also worked as an analyst and pitcher coach, which has improved his wealth too.

Orel Hershiser was a son of Mildred and Orel Leonard Hershiser III; the family moved a lot between Toronto, Detroit, and New Jersey, where Orel went to the Cherry Hill High School East. He became a top sportsman while at the high school, but received just a partial scholarship from the Bowling Green State University.

After some initial struggles in his freshman year, Hershiser started playing in his junior year when he improved, and even made it to the all-Mid-American Conference All-Star team. The Los Angeles Dodgers picked-up Hershiser in the 17th round of the 1979 MLB Draft, and immediately assigned him to the Clinton Dodgers, the Class A farm team in the Midwest League. Orel also played for the San Antonio Dodgers and Albuquerque Dukes, before making his debut for the Dodgers in September 1983.

In May 1984, Hershiser debuted against the New York Mets and ended the season with 11 wins and eight losses and a 2.66 ERA in 45 games, including 20 starts. Already the following year, Orel led the National League in winning percentage, recording 19-3 with a 2.03 ERA, helping the Dodgers win the NL West, but losing to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1985 National League Championship Series. Following an unimpressive season in 1986, Hershiser bounced back in 1987, and earned his first invitation to the All-Star game, while in 1988, he had the best season of his career. Besides being selected for his second All-Star game in a row, Orel led the league in wins, innings, shutouts, and complete games. He also won the NL Cy Young Award and Golden Glove Award, but the crown of the season was the Dodger’s winning of the World Series, with Hershiser named the MVP of the game.

Soon after, Orel signed a new three-year contract worth $7.9 million, and appeared in his third and final All-Star game. He stayed with the Dodgers for the next five seasons, winning the Silver Slugger Award in 1993, but the team failed to achieve significant results, and after the 1994–95 MLB strike, he became a free agent. Hershiser signed a three-year deal with the Cleveland Indians, and instantly made an impact, leading them to their first playoff appearance in 41 years. They even made it to the World Series in 1995, but the Atlanta Braves were better in six games. Orel and the Indians then made it to the 1997 World Series, but this time they lost to the Florida Marlins.

In December 1997. Hershiser penned a one-year contract worth of $3.45 million with the San Francisco Giants, but stayed there for just the one year, before heading to the New York Mets in 1999. In December that year, Orel returned to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but retired from playing the next June. Hershiser holds the MLB record of 59 consecutive scoreless innings pitched.After his retirement, Hershiser worked as a special assistant to General Manager John Hart of the Texans Rangers in 2001, and later as the pitcher coach. He also served as an analyst for ESPN, and currently works with the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcast team.

Regarding his personal life, Orel Hershiser was married to Jamie Byars until 2005 and has two sons with her. He then married former literacy specialist Dana Deaver in 2010, and they live in Las Vegas with Devear’s two children.
