For the active play era, I play an active part in San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals and am known for the large field as the shortstop and splendid defense and have a nickname of "The Wizard of Oz" (The Wizard of Oz ). I win Gold Glove Award for 13 consecutive years from 1980. Number of the assists 8375 was a most record until Major League record, number of the double plays 1590 were updated in 2007 by Omar screw KEL.

I achieved a debut as a major leaguer in San Diego Padres in 1978 and got a regular by the defense, but the blow was not good enough and was a state called .211 in .258, 1979 for 1,978 years.
However, I show power by the defense to make up for disability and establish the MLB record called 621 assists as a shortstop in 1980 and win oneself's first Gold Glove Award. I recorded 57 steals, and this age greatly appealed by defense and base running, but the batting average was disability of .230 same as before.
It was to have transferred to St. Louis Cardinals in 1982 to have been a turning point. I fixed on defense of Smith, and director ホワイティ her Zogu who led Cardinals was the thing which could not live without judgments that it increased in those days in those days in Busch Memorial Stadium which I based on. By an encounter with director her Zogu, I do it in the transfer first year and play a key role of the infield defense and, in the same year, enter the home following the third base runner by a sacrifice fly of Tom her as the second runner by the World Series second war (anti-Milwaukee Bulwer's) from the second. Her recorded "two points of sacrifice flies" of World Series history only (2008 end of time). It became the driving force to lead Cardinals to the world champion of the ninth that it was 15 years since then.
I came to lay emphasis on a blow while I polished defense, and the batting average gradually rose from the 20% level, too. By the league Championship Series fifth war with Los Angeles Dodgers of 1985, Smith of the switch hitter gave off the one and only and the home run that it was in the left turn at bat and led a team to the good-bye victory. And I recorded .303 to become the batting average of the oneself best in 1987 and completely overturned the evaluation called "a player only for defense". It was concerned that defense decreased by the trouble of the shoulder in the same year, but I understood a quick throw after hard practice and covered it.
It was not thought for the common sense to have already reached "an act of God" and the declared ground about the short defense, and to be out, and to do a grounder of the shortstop deepest region (the approximately left front) by Jean Ping throw as with no bounds, and to process an irregular bound barehanded while diving. I am praised saying "it is rare that Smith kicks out one point with the bat (in one game), and, however, two points prevent him with the glove surely".
It was the participation of 151 games in 1991, and the mistake showed an exceptional sense of stability for only eight and many shortstops of the defense opportunity. In addition, the winning Gold Glove Award in the continuation records the most as a shortstop in history for 13 years until 1992. I am elected in 2007 by all thyme Gold Glove teams (in defense a player of the each generation best).
I retire last in 1996. 2,460 hits of career hits record 580 steals in total, and it may be said that the strikeout was very few superior lead-off men. Uniform number 1 in Cardinals is appointed in a permanently retired uniform number with a retirement.
Nico Smith (Nikko Smith) of the son went until the finals in 4 in an audition show "American idol" season and, in 2005, became the topic (as for the result the ninth place). I perform national anthem unison before the game of the fourth war in the World Series of 2006 when Cardinals participated.
