Happy Birthday Lee Smith!!!

Today, one of baseball’s greatest relief pitchers is turning 52 years old.  Lee Smith is no longer a household name, but if you ask anyone who the Mariano Rivera of the 1980’s was, it was Smith!!! 

If I could give Lee Smith one gift for his birthday, it would be a vote for his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.  At the time of his retirement, Smith was the career leader in saves, yet players with lesser accolades have been enshrined at Cooperstown while Smith remains as just another name of the ballot. 

Happy Birthday to you, Mr. Smith!!!
