He joined baseball’s greatest team in 2002, and ever since Ozzie Smith has brought his electric smile and infectious enthusiasm to Hall of Fame Weekend.
And along the way, Ozzie and his Hall of Fame friends have provided unceasing support for the Museum’s Education Program through Turn Two.
Smith, the Education Ambassador for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, hosts Turn Two annually on the Friday of Hall of Fame Weekend. Over the years, The Wizard has brought dozens of his fellow Hall of Famers to the event, providing participants with an unforgettable morning filled with on-field moments and stories with Hall of Famers.
Turn Two is a Museum fundraiser that supports the Hall of Fame’s educational mission and the Ozzie Smith Diversity Scholarships for the Museum’s Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development. Since 2002, the program has raised more than $200,000 for the Museum’s initiatives.
