Say what you will about David Wrights performance on the field this season, but you can never question his character. Wright, who was named team captain last season, has been nothing short of a role model since joining the Mets in 2004.
In every persons life, there is someone who helps mold us into who we will become later in our lives. After watching this interview segment, there is no doubt that Wrights parents deserve the credit for making him the man he is today. This short, but well done, piece summed up just how much influence Wrights father has had on him.
More than any other sport, baseball seems to have the strongest father-son connection. I’m not sure why that is. Maybe it’s the remembrance of playing catch at an early age (which I able to do again yesterday), our first trip to a major league ball park or the encouraging words our fathers gave us after our little league games, but that bond has given many of us memories that will last a lifetime.
Hope you all enjoyed your father’s day!
