The holiday season is full of heartfelt moments, and Kansas City Royals minor leaguer Brady Singer came through with another one Tuesday.
The No. 18 pick in the 2018 MLB draft posted a video on Twitter of his parents reading an emotional letter thanking them for the support throughout his life and baseball career. It ended with an incredible Christmas gift as Singer said he’d pay off his parents’ bank loan as well as all of their current debt:

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. I can’t thank them enough. Love you Mom and Dad https://t.co/AFHi2Xma0c
Singer has yet to make his professional debut but signed a contract in July that included a $4.5 million signing bonus. This was apparently enough for him to pay his parents back for everything they’ve done for him.
The 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him after winning the Dick Howser Trophy last season at the University of Florida, given to the best college baseball player in the country. And it didn’t take long into his professional career for him to make a meaningful impact for two special people.
