Lee Smith Booking Agency Profile

Book Lee Smith for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Smith, a native of Jamestown in Bienville Parish, north Louisiana, was selected by the Cubs in the 1975 Major League Baseball Draft after being scouted by Buck O'Neil. With his 95 mph fastball, Smith's stature of 6 feet, 6 inches made him a formidable presence on the pitcher's mound. Smith led the National League (NL) in saves three times in his career, and he also led the American League (AL) once while playing with the Baltimore Orioles. Smith tied a record in the NL with 47 saves for the St. Louis Cardinals and finished second in the league's Cy Young Award voting. In addition, he established the big-league record for games completed in a career. When he retired, his 1,022 career pitches ranked third in history.
Since 2003, Smith has run nine times for the Baseball Writers Association of America's Hall of Fame, but he has only ever gotten 37–47% of the votes required for inclusion, with 75% of the vote required for election. Smith worked for a while as a pitching teacher with the San Francisco Giants in the minor leagues following the conclusion of his major league career. Afterwards, in both the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics, he coached the pitching for the South African national baseball team. For the Giants, Lee is still employed as a minor-league traveling pitching teacher..
