What would you do with $5 million?
Arizona Diamondbacks 2017 first-round pick Pavin Smith did his best Santa Claus impression after he received that kind of cash.
Smith paid off his parents' mortgage as a Christmas gift, giving them a note that his mother read aloud on video Christmas Day.
Thank you for everything you have done for me! This doesn’t make up for any of it. Love you both so much. Our home is finally all YOURS. Merry Christmas! pic.twitter.com/h9wog2HfHv— Pavin Smith (@PavinSmith) December 25, 2017
