Nyjer Morgan is an outfielder in the Acereros de Monclova who has an estimated net worth of $1 million. He got the nicknames “Tony Plush,” “Tony Hush,” or “Tony Gumbo.” Nyjer Jamid Morgan was born on July 2, 1980, in San Francisco, California. He previously played ice hockey and reached the Major Junior level with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League in 1999-2000. In the following season, he focused on baseball and became drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2002 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft’s 33rd round.
Last September 14, 2007, Morgan experienced one of his first big plays after he made a catch that allowed the Pirates to win against the Milwaukee Brewers. Houston Astros manager Cecil Cooper was one of the people who noticed his catch. It invited comparisons to Willy May’s famous “The Catch” that was most notably on the ESPN sports news program SportsCenter. He eventually rose in the sport of baseball.
Tony Plush is one of the many athletes were not free from controversy. Last May 23, 2010, he reacted angrily because of a missed ball by storming off the field and tossing his glove to the side. Tony also courted controversy by taunting his fellow players on his Twitter account. He was also widely scrutinized for twice yelling out obscenities on live TV immediately after the Brewers won the National League Division on October 7, 2011.
