It’s been a good year for Arizona Diamondbacks 2017 first-round pick Pavin Smith, so the baseball player gave his parents a special Christmas gift. The 21-year-old pro player used part of his $5-million signing bonus to pay off his parents’ mortgage.
Smith shared a video of his parents finding out about the good news in a letter from him that his mom read aloud. “Thank you for raising me in a great home filled with love,” Smith writes. “Because of all the sacrifices you made to get me where I am, I want our family home to be yours.”
