Happy Birthday To John Smoltz and George Brett

Two of my favorite baseball players share a birthday today: Future Hall of Famer John Smoltz and Hall of Famer George Brett. Brett is one of the greatest third basemen of all-time and played his whole 20 year career in Kansas City. A pistol on and off the field Brett is known not just for his 3000 plus hits and over .300 batting average but the most famous ejection in MLB history: The Pine Tar Game.



If you ever see Brett in Las Vegas please don't give him the crab legs. This is his epic explosive shit story from Spring Training...

Also a big 45th Happy Birthday to the greatest Atlanta Braves pitcher of all-time John Smoltz. Yes I said it. Smoltz is the best "Atlanta" pitcher for his whole career. Better than Niekro, Mad Dog, and Glavine in my opinion. He is a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer and was the most clutch Braves player in postseason history. Whether starting or closing games the first guy I would want on the mound wearing the tomahawk is Smoltzie. He also has a pretty sweet house up in Milton...

Why is Smoltzie selling that pad and playground? Is he planning on moving out of GA, now that he's an MLB broadcaster?

Not sure. Maybe the place is too big for him?
