Zane Smith

1986 Topps

Smith won 100 games during a 13-year career that spanned from 1984-1996. He broke in with the Atlanta Braves and was a 15-game winner for the team in 1987, the same year he led the National League in starts (36). Smith reached double-digit wins again in 1990 when he won 12 games while pitching for the Montreal Expos and Pittsburgh Pirates. It was a feat he would replicate again the following season while pitching exclusively for the Bucs. Smith posted a career-high 16 wins in 1991 for Pittsburgh. He won 10 more games for the club in 1994, which would be his final season to reach the double-digit win mark.


Smith pitched in the postseason three times, twice with Pittsburgh in the National League Championship Series (1990, 1991) and once with the Boston Red Sox in the American League Division Series (1995). In five games he had a 1-4 record and a 2.88 ERA.
