I'm not buying that. He is signing his contract in Brooklyn.

Cone is FROM Columbia so if he somehow opened there I think there would be a PR aspect to this

South Carolina outfielder Gene Cone has agreed to terms with the Mets and will officially sign his contract Friday in Brooklyn, a South Carolina spokesperson confirmed Thursday night.

According to Jim Callis of MLB.com, Cone’s signing bonus is for $150,000.

The Spring Valley product led USC in hitting this year with a .363 average. He finished with 13 doubles, two triples, four homers and 30 RBIs and was named first-team All-SEC.

Cone could one day play locally for the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets’ Class A affiliate. He is more likely to start this summer at New York’s Short-Season A team Brooklyn, N.Y., or the Mets’ Rookie League team in Kingsport, Tenn.
