David Wright discusses his fathers influence on his career and life

David and Rhon Wright

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!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
