Gavin Cecchini’s idol while he was growing up? Well, that would be a shortstop on the other side of town — the Yankees’ Derek Jeter.
The Mets have agreed to terms with first-round pick Gavin Cecchini, the club confirmed on Friday. The 12th overall pick of the 2012 amateur draft — a shortstop straight out of high school — signed with New York for $2.3 million, according to CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman.
For the first time since interleague play began in 1997, Mariano Rivera will not be part of the Yankees-Mets matchup.
Gavin Cecchini went to New York for a pre-draft workout and wound up a witness to one of the greatest nights in Mets history.
