The 2023 MLB draft’s top prospect Wyatt Langford is making headlines for various reasons this season. One among them is his parents’ revelation that he always wanted to be on the top since the start and his peculiar way of reacting to the loss, be it any game.
His mom, Maria, recalls an incident when he went home and cried to sleep just because he finished second in a race.
Likewise, the other time Wyatt went missing after he could not hit the ball well, and Michael had to go around their hometown for hours, searching for him.
Even though he has now grown up to be somewhat less chaotic, his attitude and spirit about the game have remained the same.
Michael believes that his son is a competitor, and this exact nature catapulted him to the success he enjoys today.
Born and raised in Trenton, Wyatt often attended the University of Florida’s sporting events near his house.
Watching them play, his biggest dream as a child was to play for the Gators team in the future.
Fortunately, his first scholarship offer came from Florida when he was a high school sophomore, to which he immediately agreed.
After having two successful seasons at college, Wyatt is all set to make his professional league entry this year.
