(WCMH) — A baseball prospect gave his parents the gift of a lifetime on Christmas morning.
Smith shared video on Twitter of his mother reading the letter revealing the gift.
The letter read:
Thank you for raising me in a great home filled with love.
Because of all the sacrifices you made to get me where I am,
I want our family home to be YOURS…
so I am paying off your mortgage
Merry Christmas from your grateful son,
