Kevin Cash was born in Tampa, Florida on December 6, 1977. He is the son of Mike Cash, a baseball player, and Patsy Cash. He is also the nephew of former MLB player Ron Cash.
Cash attended Florida State University, where he played college baseball.
He is currently married to Emily Cash and they have three children: Camden, Ella, and J.D. The family presently resides in Hillsborough County, Florida.
Kevin started his baseball career when he played for Northside Little League and made it to the Little League World Series. He achieved immense success in college baseball, playing in the World Series and was a runner-up at Florida State during an NCAA tournament in 1999.
In 2002, Kevin was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays, playing for the team for three seasons as a backup and defensive replacement. In 2005, Kevin was acquired by the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays, but he was designated for assignment a year later and eventually cleared waivers. In 2007, Kevin was signed by the Boston Red Sox to a minor league contract, but he was called up to serve as legendary knuckleballer Tim Wakefield’s personal catcher, playing for two seasons at Fenway Park.
In 2009, the New York Yankees signed Kevin to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, but he soon announced his retirement from Major League Baseball. However, a few months later, Kevin changed his mind and signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros in May 2010, but he was traded to the Red Sox a month later.
In his final year in pro-baseball, Kevin played for the Texas Rangers and its Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock. By the end, he posted a .183 batting average, 12 home runs, and 58 RBIs.
He has been a part of two World Series rosters: the 2007 Boston Red Sox and the 2009 New York Yankees.
He finally retired in 2012, taking his talents to scouting and coaching. He worked as an advanced coach for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012. He later joined the Cleveland Indians as a bullpen coach. In 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays hired Kevin to be their manager.
Since 2015, he has had a near .500 winning percentage. During the 2018 major league season, Kevin has achieved the most success since becoming a manager, posting a winning record and sitting in third place in the ultra-competitive American League East division.
We estimate that Kevin Cash’s net worth is $1 million (2018).
So how much is $1 million really?
$1 million can cover four percent of the Tampa Bay Rays payroll. $1 million can also pay for the contracts of two Ray players.
