Happy Birthday to Tommy Smith, who was my teammate on the Cleveland Indians from 1974 to 1976. The first time I ever saw Tommy Smith was in his major league debut in September of 1973. He hit an Inside-the-Park Home Run off Pat Dobson at Yankee Stadium. I got to know him after his August call-up. The first time we played together was on August 14, 1974 at Cleveland Stadium. I remember the game because he saved me. It was the top of the sixth, the score was tied, two out, Larry Hisle on second and Rod Carew on first – and Harmon Killebrew was At-Bat. Killer hit a shot to center, Tommy dove and caught it to end the inning.
