The Wizzard, Ozzie Smith:
Here is my story that aired yesterday on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
When you manage the Dodgers for 20 years you see a lot of things that you can’t believe. We are playing the Cardinals in the 1985 playoffs, and Ozzie Smith hits a home run to beat us. Ozzie hadn’t hit a home run from the left side in something like 3000 at-bats.
All of a sudden, he hits a home run to beat us, and I still can’t believe it. Every time I see Ozzie he likes to remind me of it.
But Ozzie is one of, if not the best shortstop, ever. He is a true Hall of Famer and an outstanding guy.
