Classic Grit

Lee Smith: One of the most imposing and lights-out closers in MLB history. 6’6”, 250, with a heater that sat mid-90s, he finished his career third on the all-time saves list, logged 11 seasons with 30+ saves, earned seven All-Star appearances, and just got a shiny new plaque in Cooperstown to commemorate it all. If there’s a Mount Rushmore for closers, he’s on it. #baseball #grit #classicgrit #ChicagoCubs #BostonRedSox #StLouisCardinals #NewYorkYankees #BaltimoreOrioles #CaliforniaAngels #CincinnatiReds #MontrealExpos

Loved Lee Smith as a kid when he was on the Angels.


Traded by the Sox to StL for Tom Brunansky, my favorite player of all time. Thank you, Mr. Smith.
