Former Major League Baseball player (pitcher), Dave Smith passed away yesterday.
Normally, I wouldn't mention something like this, except that I had the pleasure of meeting this fine man. He gave pitching lessons to my youngest son, and we both had the opportunity to see a small glimpse into the man, on those occasions where we simply sat and talked before/after the lessons.
Both my son and I have fond memories of the time with him. We will both miss him.
Rest In Peace Dave. Rest In Peace.
