Mets draft high school first baseman Dominic Smith

With the 11th overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, the Mets selected first baseman Dominic Smith, a left-handed power hitter who grew up not far from Darryl Strawberry’s old neighborhood south of Los Angeles.

Strawberry, coincidentally, was one of the Mets’ Draft reps in Secaucus, N.J. Here’s a photo of the two together at MLB Network Studios, courtesy of the Mets:
