Reggie Smith’s experience as a baseball player, coach, and consultant encompasses more than 50 years
A seven-time Major League All Star and Gold Glove winner, Reggie was originally signed by the Minnesota Twins, and went on to play for the Boston Red Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Dodgers, and the San Francisco Giants. Reggie played in four World Series, winning in 1981 with the Dodgers. His 314 career home runs placed him second on the switch-hitters list when he retired as a player.
Reggie enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a coach and teacher. He has worked with the Dodgers as their hitting instructor and first base coach. He was instrumental in the development of several Dodger Rookies of the Year, including Hall of Famer, Mike Piazza. In 1999 he helped coach Team USA to a Silver Medal in the Pan American Games. That team went on to take the Gold Medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, with Reggie as their hitting coach.
Today, Reggie consults with Major League Baseball organizations, offers private and small-group instruction for players of all levels, as well as trains and certifies coaches for various amateur and school baseball leagues from around the world.
