I remember the Mets drafting him off the roster of the Phillies; he was a good field no hit outfielder. What you should remember about him is that he played on both the 61 Phils and 62 Mets. Enough Said

Originally a Cardinal, he was traded to the Phillies. He played on the 1961 Phillies, a team that lost 23 stright games under Gene Mauch. He was taken by the Mets in the expansion draft. He is rememebered most for having three names and he couldn't hit using any of them.

Just to keep history alive. I met Bobby Gene Smith in 1988 at my place of work. I didn't know anything about him or his life in baseball. Someone else told me he had been a MLB player. I had just started collecting sports cards and began looking for his cards. I managed to find 3 different cards and brought them into work and had Bobby autograph them for me. He appeared to me to be a solid man and after learning of his baseball career I could see how large and strong looking his forearms were. He seemed to have a large, solid frame and I could imagine him as a ball player. At the time of my meeting him, he was working for a County Public Works department in Washington State on one of the road crews, perhaps as an equipment operator. He seemed to be a nice, quiet man. I imagine just what it must have been like to be in and around baseball and some of the greatest baseball players in history. I bet he has some great memories and stories.
