Lonnie Smith is mostly remembered for about a five-second span of the 1991 World Series, but his entire career is one of the most fascinating sports stories of my lifetime. This is the third episode of Pretty Good, a show about stories that are pretty good.
Written, narrated, illustrated, and produced by Jon Bois, who knows how to do stuff, but barely.
