Thomas Metzger, 10, has become a member of American Mensa. In order to be accepted into the high IQ society, Metzger had to score in the top 2 percent on a standardized, accepted intelligence test. Metzger scored in the top 1 percent, also known as the 99th percentile.

Relocating a year ago from Long Island, N.Y. to Peachtree City, Ga., Metzger is currently a home-schooled sixth grader, having skipped first grade in public school. His hobbies include: Peachtree City Little League baseball where he’s a pitcher, chess, Legos, electronics and animal husbandry. He says he hopes to “someday study wolves in the wild and raise their numbers through captive breeding.” His plan is to do this after he’s retired from Major League Baseball and the CIA.

Metzger is the oldest of three children, having two younger brothers; George, 3, and Charles, 2. He is the son of Richard and Sallie Metzger.
