Things are really good for David Wright, the young third baseman for the New York Mets. Playing in a city known for being particularly critical of its pro athletes, the young slugger has become the apple of New York's eye (and the envy of mid-20s males) for his slick fielding, clutch hitting, and charismatic presence.
Wright breaks into a new area today. Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that he will be the cover athlete for the upcoming MLB 07: The Show. The game is due in stores in early 2007 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
Wright is coming off his best season yet, one in which he batted .311, belted 26 dingers, and knocked in 116. His performance earned him his first All-Star appearance, where he started for the National League squad.
