Diamondbacks Draft Pick Pays Off Parents Mortgage for Christmas

The holiday season is always full of good stories as people get into the holiday spirit and help one another. Yesterday we got to see this in the baseball world when one the top draft picks in the 2017 MLB Draft gave his parents a wonderful Christmas gift.

Drafted seventh overall last June by the Diamondbacks, Pavin Smith signed a contract with a $5 million signing bonus. The first baseman out of the University of Virginia surprised his parents with a wonderful holiday surprise. One that left his mother in tears.

Smith used part of that signing bonus to show his appreciation to his parents for raising him in “a great home filled with love” by paying off their mortgage. And he caught it on camera.

He even says on Twitter that this “doesn’t make up for any of it”.

What a wonderful thing to do for his parents and only goes to show the man that they have raised.
