Family & Etnicity Details
Aaron of African-American ethnicity was born to father Joseph Hicks and caring mother on 2 October 1989. The California native's father wanted him to pursue a career in golf and become the next Tiger Woods, instead of a career in baseball.
The New York Yankees star's father's disapproval of baseball was a rather personal story. Jospeh used to be a baseball player. He was picked in the amateur draft in the 12th round by San Diego Padres in 1975. He even played for Walla Walla Padres.
Sadly, his baseball aspirations were cut short after getting an orbital bone injury while playing on the field. The injury resulted in him quitting his athletic career and taking up other jobs to support his wife and kids.
However, his son Aaron defied his father and proved his mettle in the baseball field. Today, his father is proud of his son's career and comes out with his whole family to cheer for his talented son.
Net Worth Details
Aaron's first signing amount with Minnesota Twins was $490K in 2013. Since then, he has shown incredible performance on the field, which resulted in an increasing net worth off-field.
In 2019, Aaron of age 29 signed a $70 million deal with his current team New York Yankees. The agreement includes a seven-year contract with a primary center fielder.
Further, the lucrative deal added $64 million in Aaron's previous agreement with the team. The new deal has the possibility of leading up to $81.5 million in 2026. No doubt, the athlete of height 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) and weight 91 kg is surely laughing his way to the bank.
