In 2011, the Major League Baseball pitcher signed a $2million contract at the age of 18. However, Norris lives a humble life that does not resemble the millions of dollars in his bank account. The car that he owns, the Volkswagen Camper is converted into a tiny home that he lives in during the offseason period.

The Milwaukee Brewers pitcher spends less than $1000 a month on his upkeep. Every month, he deposits $800 into his checking account. Norris advises people that being a millionaire does not mean that you have to waste money on luxurious items.
