Pavin Smith made his parents cry for Christmas. But these were tears of joy.
The Arizona Diamondbacks’ first-base prospect — who was originally drafted by the Rockies in the 32nd round of the 2014 MLB draft — received a signing bonus of more than $5 million after being drafted with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 draft. He spent some of that money by surprising his parents and paying off their mortgage.
If you don’t like crying, don’t watch this:
Thank you for everything you have done for me! This doesn’t make up for any of it. Love you both so much. Our home is finally all YOURS. Merry Christmas! pic.twitter.com/h9wog2HfHv
