TERRE HAUTE, Ind.(WTHI) - The New York Mets made another attempt to sign former Terre Haute South baseball standout A.J. Reed.
Back in June the Mets selected the Wabash Valley baseball great in the 25th round of the Major League Baseball draft. Monday night at midnight was the deadline MLB teams had to sign their draft picks from this year.
Last month the Mets made their initial offer to Reed, who turned it down saying he was going to honor his baseball scholarship at the University of Kentucky.
A.J. confirmed to Sports 10 the Mets called him twice Monday, they wanted to know a dollar amount he would sign for, that they could work with.
The Mets second offer to Reed was for 300-thousand dollars, plus they would pay for his college education.
AJ informed Sports 10 he once again turned down the Mets offer. Reed leaves this Friday for the University of Kentucky.
