Former Cubs outfielder Dwight Smith passes away


by - Senior Editor -

Former Chicago Cubs outfielder Dwight Smith has passed away at the age of 58.

Smith was the 1989 National League runner-up to teammate Jerome Walton as they helped the team to a National League East title that year.

Many Cubs fans have fond memories of watching that duo hit alongside Mark Grace, Ryno, and others in 1989.

During that rookie season, Smith hit .324 in 109 games and played with the ball club through the 1993 season.

In those five seasons with the Cubs, he hit .285 with 32 dingers.

CubsHQ would like to give our most heartfelt condolences to Smith's family and friends.
