Reserve Lonnie Smith

Experience: 17th year, second with Orioles

1994 stats: 35 games, .203/.333/.254, no home runs, two RBIs

From the archives: "Lonnie Smith, major-league baseball's human good-luck charm, has been to the World Series five times with a record four different organizations.

He went there with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1980, St. Louis Cardinals in 1982, Kansas City Royals in 1985 and Atlanta Braves in 1991 and 1992.

If anyone knows how to cope with the excess of baseball's biggest event, it's Lonnie Smith, the game's oldest pinch runner at the age of 38."
