Brett was born into a family who were very passionate about sports. He had a brother who pitched in the 1967 World Series and two other brothers who played baseball. He hoped to follow his brother’s Ken footsteps and after matriculating from El Segundo High School, George decided to join the 1971 baseball draft. He was selected as the 29th overall pick by the Kansas City Royals.

George started in the minor leagues as a shortstop, but later became a third baseman. He played with the Omaha Royals from 1971 to 1973 and soon got promoted to the major leagues. The following year he got the starting third base position, but struggled until he asked Charlie Lau to help improve his skills. He then became better as a hitter, and improved dramatically by the end of the year. In 1975, his batting average became .300 and it would continue to improve over the course of the next few years. His popularity was rising as well, and he was even featured in a Sports Illustrated article. Brett helped the Royals get three consecutive American League(AL) West titles, and in 1979, he was in third place in AL MVP voting, becoming the sixth player in history to have 20 homers, doubles and triples in one season. His net worth was also rising.

His impressive statistics continued in 1980, when his batting average was .390 and he became the AL MVP, helping the team win the AL West, and would face the Yankees once more in the AL Championship Series, in which George helped the team get their first Championship, sweeping the Yankees in three games of the play-offs. He continued this great performance with a .375 batting average in the 1980 World Series, which was eventually lost to the Philadelphia Phillies – Brett was also suffering from hemorrhoids during this time.

In 1985, Brett helped the Royals get a second AL Championship. He finished in the top 10 of 10 different offensive categories, and would eventually win a Gold Glove. He became the MVP of the 1985 playoffs and the Royals would become the World Series Champions for the first time after defeating the St. Louis Cardinals. He continued to play for the team, winning batting titles in three separate decades. He finally retired in 1993, at the final game ever played at Arlington Stadium.

In 1999, George was inducted into the Hall of Fame, and his number was retired by the Royals. He became vice-president of the team, and also worked as a special instructor and part-time coach. He served as a batting coach for a while, before becoming the Vice-President of Baseball Operations. He and his older brother tried to purchase the Kansas City Royals n 1998, but were unsuccessful.

For his personal life, he has been married to Leslie Davenport since 1992; they have three children, and currently reside in Kansas.

Brett is also known for his philanthropic work, helping raise money for Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. He and his dog also appeared in a PETA Campaign that urged pet owners not to leave their dogs under the hot sun.
