The St. Louis Blues called on a Wizard to help their Stanley Cup run.
Ozzie Smith, the Hall of Fame shortstop who played 15 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, recorded a video to fire up Blues fans ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday.
Smith, known as "The Wizard of Oz" for his exceptional fielding that earned him 13 Gold Glove Awards, is one of the most beloved athletes in St. Louis sports history. He said he "loves watching the Blues" and was hoping to hear their Stanley Cup Playoff anthem "Gloria" by the game's end.
Smith became the latest St. Louis sports hero to lend his support to the Blues' Stanley Cup Playoff run, but he wasn't the only notable Cardinals staffer to show support for the Blues before Game 2. St. Louis employees also wore Blues gear to work Wednesday.
