As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end – and that’s the case this week as “Carpool Conversations” wraps up its second summer with TinCaps reliever Austin Smith.
The ever selection by Padres general manager A.J. Preller, Smith was selected out of high school in Florida in the 2015 MLB Draft. A six-foot-four righty, Smith began his career as a starting pitching before transferring to the bullpen. He’s spent time in a TinCaps uniform in each of the last three seasons.
An avid fisherman, Smith talks fashion, fastballs, and bullpen fun in this week’s segment.
