Richard Giannotti Bio, Wife (Joy Taylor), Age, Net Worth, Family

This sportsman cum entrepreneur has shown his skill in both playing and serving in a managerial capacity in the game of baseball. To many, however, Richard Giannotti’s name only came to the fore when he got hitched to the big time Fox Sports television personality, Joy Taylor.

Richard played the sports in high school, university, and also professionally for the Los Angeles Angels (Anaheim Angels) and other MLB teams for almost a decade. Nevertheless, it seems today, he gets more of a kick out of his businesses and teaching athletes how to plan and manage their finances.

Richard Giannotti’s Bio (Age)

Born Richard Brandon Giannotti on August 9, 1983, his life story begins in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As a boy, Richard always showed a love for sports and all things athletic. He, however, only started to really participate in the sport of baseball when he got to college.

For his high school education, Giannotti was enrolled at St. Thomas High School. It was located in his hometown of Ft. Lauderdale. After graduating from St. Thomas, he was given an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Miami. There, he studied Business Administration and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree for his course of study.

While at Miami, he started to play baseball and improved consistently. This led to him clinching the Florida State-wide title of the best All-State Outfielder. He was instrumental to the many wins his team racked up during his time there.

Richard Giannotti’s performances apparently caught the eyes of some teams in the MLB. In 2004, Giannotti attained pro baseball status after he was selected by the Anaheim Angels during the year’s MLB draft exercise. The team was renamed to The Los Angeles Angels in January of 2005. His time there led to a nine-year career as a professional player in Major League Baseball. It also saw him turn out for several other teams before the end of his career in 2012. Throughout his career, his colleagues and teammates almost always only had good things to say about him as a mentor and friend.

While still a pro baseballer, Richard Giannotti found the time to put his University degree to good use. In September of 2008, he became co-owner of Bubucheek Clothing, a clothing line operating out of his home State. He worked with the clothing outfit from that time up until September 2014.

The following month, he decided to put his business administration skills to use to help players in his sport. Having experienced too many players go bankrupt after a lucrative playing career, he established Athlete Asset Management at Global Wealth Management. Again, deciding to pit shop in his hometown, the company stands and operates as a financial adviser to help active athletes manage and increase their wealth through smart investments. Richard serves in the capacity of President and Financial Adviser for the management and investment outfit.

What Is His Net Worth?

Richard Giannotti is not one to toot his financial horn. However, it is safe to assume that he is sitting on a sizable wealth when you consider his life and dealings so far. He played professional baseball for 9 years, was a co-owner of a clothing line for a further six years, and has been at the head of a financial and asset management company since 2014. Although his net worth is not publicly stated, all this point to the fact that Giannotti must be worth a huge sum.

His Wife (Joy Taylor) and Family

The Florida native was born to Richard J. Giannotti and Susan Giannotti. Nothing much is known about his mother, but his father, Richard used to be an A-list FBI agent, operating mostly in the state of Florida. During his lifetime, he was credited for cracking some high profile cases in Miami and putting them to bed. He passed away on October 5, 2016. The baseballer also has a step sister named Leslie Rennie.

Richard met tv sports news personality, Joy Allison Taylor at a conference. It was long before they clicked and started dating in 2014. After two years together, they decided to get married.

Joy Taylor works for Fox Sports 1 and is mostly known for her previous work as a moderator on the sports talk show, Skip and Shannon: Undisputed. Currently, she is the news update anchor on The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

The Pennsylvania gal has always been around men in sports before Richard. Her older brother Jason Taylor is a former footballer and turned out in the NFL for 15 seasons playing at defensive end.

Sometime in 2015, Joy was the one who proposed to Richard. Richard accepted and they started to plan their life together. Taylor and Richard got married on February 13, 2016, at the Biltmore Luxury Hotel located in Miami.

The wedding was a quiet one; thus it surprised their fans when the wedding pictures surfaced online soon after the ceremony. The couple was supposed to have a fairytale life, however, the marriage didn’t survive the test of time. They called it quits in early 2018. Joy Taylor moved on with another sportsman, former NBA player and coach, Earl Watson. The two are currently engaged.
