22-Year-Old Is Signed To Major League Baseball Team, Uses First Paycheck To Pay Off Parent’s Debt

By - 31st December 2018

Parents dedicate their lives to making their children happy. They spend their money on them and take them to classes and social events. The amount that parents do for their children could never be repaid in full. But young baseball player Brady Singer wanted to at least do something to pay back his parents for everything they have done for him. 

22-year-old Brady Singer was recently drafted by the Kansas City Royals baseball team. The young athlete would make over $4 million as a result of signing with a Major League Baseball team.

It was more money than he could ever imagine. So how would he spend it?

Would he buy cars, go on fancy holidays or wear expensive designer clothes? No, Brady had something more important to spend his money on.

He took to Twitter to share an emotional video of his parents opening a card with a very special message from him. He wrote on Twitter:

Today is very special to my heart. To give back to the two people who have given up everything to support my brother and I.

In the video clip, Brady Singer’s mom reads his letter out loud. As she gets further into the heartfelt letter, she starts to tear up as she realizes what he is about to say. His dad sits next to her, taking in the incredible news.

Dear Mom and Dad, I just want to say ‘Thank you’ for everything you’ve done to help me reach my dreams.

There’s absolutely no way I could have done all this by myself. Both of you constantly took off of work and spent every dime you made just to put a smile on my face.

To give back to the two people who have given up everything to support my brother and I.

The money you both spent on traveling, gear, hotel, food and all those Gatorades I drank is much more than I could ever give you, but there’s something I want to give to you.

Brady paid off the loans and debt that his parents were in so that now every cent they earn can be spent on themselves.

Needless to say, the video has since gone viral and people everywhere are sobbing into their coffees as they watch. It is an incredible gesture and it clearly means a lot to them. They clearly raised a good son.
