Happy Birthday John Smoltz!!!

Happy Birthday John Smoltz!!!

John Smoltz turns 47 years old today!!!

One of the most versatile and team-oriented players to play the game in the last 20 years, John Smoltz is a rare breed. A player that is willing to accept any role that the team wants him to perform in, Smoltz personified what the ‘Team-First’ mentality is all about.

Smoltz has 213 career wins alongside 154 saves. Had he not spent 4 seasons in the bullpen during his days with the Atlanta Braves, Smoltz could have been in line to win 300 career games. Instead, he did what was asked of him and saved an incredible 154 games in 4 years for the ‘Bravos’.

Happy Birthday Smoltzy!!!

  1. The Braves pitching staff of the early-mid 90s was absolutely amazing. Also, great card choice. The 92 fleer ultra design is still one of my favorites.
