The seventh overall pick from this year's Draft can be seen smiling in the video after his parents, overcome with gratitude, stop reading the letter.
Smith, MLB.com's No. 63 overall prospect, signed with a bonus worth "just over $5 million," according to MLB Pipeline. The 21-year-old first baseman batted .318/.401/.415 over his first 51 professional games, helping the Class A Short Season Hillsboro Hops reach the Northwest League playoffs.
He was also a Northwest League All-Star, and Toolshed recently listed him as a prospect with the potential to develop in the mold of Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto.
