Ozzie Smith is a one-in-a-lifetime kind of player. After being traded from the San Diego Padres to the St. Louis Cardinals, Smith blossomed into one of the greatest shortstops to ever play the game. Though he garnered a respectable number of hits during his career (2,460), Smith’s true talent revolved around his stellar fielding abilities. His efforts helped the Cardinals to win the World Series in 1982. From 1978 to 1966, Smith was selected to the All-Star Game 15 times and won the Gold Glove Award 13 times. After his final game in 1996, the Cardinals retired his #1 jersey in tribute to his career. His achievements are immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame, which Smith was elected to in 2002.
