Drafted by the New York Mets in 2001, he did not make his professional debut until 2004. However, while playing professional baseball, he was a five-time All-Star, recipient of the Gold Glove Award, two Silver Slugger Awards, became a member of the 30-30 Club, and still holds the Met’s record for the most career doubles. Before signing with the Mets, Wright’s goal was to become an engineer but a first round draft pick changed his direction in life. In the summer of 2004, Wright starred in his first professional game as third baseman against the Montreal Expos, thereafter becoming the starter. With a first season .293 batting average, 40 RBIs, and 14 homeruns in 263 at bats during 69 games, it is no wonder he received the “This Year in Baseball Awards” Rookie of the Year Award.
