About Cameron Maybin

Cameron Keith Maybin (born April 4, 1987) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the San Diego Padres. He was the tenth over-all pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft by the Detroit Tigers. Maybin played high school baseball for T.C. Roberson High School in Asheville, North Carolina. As a freshman, he led his team to a state title and was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. Joe Hayden, his manager with the Midland Redskins, said he had 'the same instincts in the outfield and at the plate' as Ken Griffey, Jr., who Hayden also coached in the Connie Mack division, an amateur baseball league for players 18 and younger. The summer before his senior season, Maybin won the Connie Mack World Series batting title and World Series MVP award in Farmington, New Mexico. Maybin was also named the 2004 Baseball America Youth Player of the Year. After graduating from high school, Maybin entered the Major League draft.
