David Allen Wright (born December 20, 1982 in Norfolk, Virginia) is an All-Star Third Baseman in Major League Baseball who plays for the New York Mets.
David Wright was brought up in Chesapeake, Virginia. A man of Italian descent, Wright attended Hickory High School in Chesapeake, Virginia. In high school, he was a three-time All-State selection and, as a senior, was named the Virginia All-State Player of the Year. He finished his high school career with a .438 batting average, 13 home runs, and 50 RBI. Although Wright had signed a letter of intent before his senior year to play baseball at Georgia Tech after high school, he opted to enter the draft when it became apparent he could be selected in the first round.
Wright, along with shortstop Jose Reyes, combine to make one of the best young duos on the left side of the infield in the Majors. David Wright is ranked second among third basemen in ESPN fantasy baseball, behind the cross-town New York Yankees counterpart Alex Rodriguez.
Wright is noted for his unaffected politeness and work ethic. He has developed a reputation for arriving very early to the park for games and being uncommonly accommodating with fans and reporters.¹
For 2007 and 2008, Wright hit over .300, scored and drove in more than 100 runs, and topped the 30 home run mark. Impressive by any standards. Below are his stats.
