David Allen Wright is a former professional baseball third baseman who played his entire 14-year Major League Baseball career for the New York Mets. He was drafted by the Mets in 2001 MLB draft and made his MLB debut on July 21, 2004 at Shea Stadium. Wright was nicknamed "Captain America" after his performance in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. In 2020, "The Captain: A Memoir" was published which chronicles Wright's journey from high school star to his World Series home runs for one of the best baseball teams in America, the Mets.
Wright is a seven-time All-Star, a two-time Gold Glove Award winner, a two-time Silver Slugger Award winner and a member of the 30–30 club. He won both MLB.com's Rookie of the Year Award in 2004 and MLB.com's Most Outstanding Play of the Year Award in 2005 in a vote by fans. He holds Mets franchise records for most career runs batted in, doubles, total bases, runs scored, walks, sacrifice flies, times on base, extra base hits, strikeouts, double plays and hits. He was named captain of the Mets in 2013, becoming the fourth captain in the team's history.
Throughout the latter half of Wright's career, he was plagued by injuries, most notably spinal stenosis, as well as additional ailments in his neck and shoulder. Wright announced that 2018 would be his final season as an active player. Wright finished his major league career with a .296 career batting average, 242 home runs, and 970 runs batted in. Upon completion of his playing career, Wright was then named a special advisor in the Mets front office.

"Then, after we hung up, I mean … what’s the first thing you do when someone tells you not to Google something because it might be scary or get you worried?"
The end of the 2018 season was near and David Wright had not played since May 27, 2016. After years of battling spinal stenosis, Wright was forced to reevaluate the remainder of his baseball career at the age of 35. After 12 years with the same organization that drafted him out of Hickory High School, Wright was forced to walk away.
Wright is unquestionably the best third baseman in Mets history and ranks atop all position players, too.
If his goal in retirement is to spend quality time with his family and fade into relative anonymity, then David Wright is 2-for-2. Considering that he was a .296 career hitter for the New York Mets, that’s right in line with his proficiency at the plate.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
