David Wright

As a Little Leaguer, David Wright didnt get to play his favorite position: shortstop. His dad was his coach and he believed young David needed to prove he could make the big plays out in right field before being moved infield. The plan worked. David put in dozens of hours of extra time practicing his fielding and hitting. He was determined to be the best. That dedicationand talentput him on the fast-track through the minor leagues and, at age 22, earned him the role of third baseman for the New York Mets. A fan favorite, Wright played on MLBs National League All-Star Team in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010, he became the youngest Mets player ever to reach 1,000 hits. Learn what motivates this hardworking player with the million-dollar smile.
