Smith says his son, Nikko who made it to the final nine in the popular talent search has overshadowed his accomplishments with the younger generation.
In his words, Ive gotten more attention in the last four or five weeks than I got in 19 years of baseball.
Still, the former St. Louis Cardinals shortstop says it doesnt bother him.
He knows he will hear Thats Nikkos dad from a lot of kids tomorrow (Apr. 26) when he hosts a field trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.
But while Nikko possess a talented voice, Smith says dont expect him to belt out any tunes for the kiddies because, as he puts it, Nikko got the style from me, but the singing definitely came from his mom.
