From: http://www.antonnews.com/: - Camden Maron is a true New York Mets fan. As a newborn, his parents dressed him in team garb to celebrate Opening Day. At age 7, he auditioned to be a Mets “announcer for the day.” And, as a teenager, the bedroom he shares with younger brother Zach is decorated with Mets memorabilia, right down to the orange walls and blue carpet. “I grew up rooting for the New York Mets, all the way, 100 percent,” said Camden. “The World Series run in 2000 was amazing and the 2006 playoff run was exhilarating.” Last month, the 18-year-old Hicksville fan received a phone call informing him that he had been selected – by the Mets – in the 34th round of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) 2009 Amateur Player Draft. On June 30, Camden headed off to Port Saint Lucie, FL to join the Gulf Coast League (GCL) Mets – the team’s Minor League Baseball affiliate. On July 10 Camden was activated and, 24 hours later, made his professional debut behind the plate when the GCL Mets took on the GCL Cardinals. In the seventh hole, Camden, who bats left and throws right, singled and scored in the second inning and, in the seventh, walked and scored to help lead the Gulf Coast Mets to a 10-0 victory.

Maron played sparingly for the GCL Mets in 2009, hitting .293/.408/.415/.823 in 41-AB.

Forecast: The Mets drafted a bunch of catchers, thus, there would be a bunch of catchers on the rookie teams. He started off the season 4th catcher, behind Nefli Zapata (lightning start of the season), Juan Torres, sent to Kingsport), and Amauris Valdez. Maron did nothing wrong… he simply didn’t get in the lineup to properly evaluate; however, in baseball, you can’t have enough good hitting catcher in your system, and this kid will be back next season. I look for him to repeat in Florida.
