Happy Birthday, Ozzie Smith

Happy birthday to Ozzie Smith who made his debut on the planet on Dec. 26, 1954. I can't believe The Wizard is 58. It seems like just yesterday I was in high school fretting that he would leave the Cardinals as a free agent because he wanted an outrageous $1 million a year to play baseball. Can you imagine?
