Mark Vientos is an American professional baseball third baseman in the New York Mets. Mark was born on December 11, 1999, bats right and throws right for the Mets.
Mark attended the very well-regarded American Heritage High School in Plantation, which has produced 23 players to play baseball professionally.
Vientos was a profoundly respected prospect whom Perfect Game named a preseason All-American in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Perfect Game additionally positioned him as the best high school player in the territory of Florida and the 16th-ranked player in the country in 2017.
In his final year, it seemed Vientos was bound to be a first-round draft pick, yet he had an injury that prompted him to have an all-over spring at American Heritage.
When the 2017 MLB draft came, Vientos was chosen by the Mets in the subsequent round, 59th overall.
He had a difficult choice whether to sign, as he grew up as an ardent fan of the University of Miami and had focused on Miami.
The Mets paid an over-opening bonus for Vientos to persuade him to sidestep school and begin his professional career.
