ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ozzie Smith's final regular season game turned out to be a big day for the man who's been considered the best shortstop in the majors for the last few years. Smith started in his final regular season game and went 0 for 2 before being removed at the beginning of the fourth inning. He was saluted with fireworks and hugged the other eight teammates who were on the field on his way to the bench.
