“The Wizard of Oz,” by Sam Bush

Here’s a fun and catchy tune about the great Ozzie Smith.  As the song states, Smith was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002, his first year of eligibility.  He was also elected to the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame with the inaugural class of 2014.

While I root against the Cardinals on principle, it is difficult to deny the Wizard.  I found his speech quite eloquent, and I love how he took apart a baseball and to create his metaphors.
