JUPITER, Fla--It's not unusual for the St. Louis Cardinals players to rub shoulders with Hall of Fame legends at spring training down in Jupiter, Florida.

After all Bob Gibson, Lou Brock and Red Schoendienst have been dispensing wisdom for decades. 

But there's a new Hall of Famer wearing the bird on the bat this spring.

Ozzie Smith is spending a week or so down in Jupiter giving fielding pointers to youngsters like Pete Kozma.

"It's just a great feeling to have an opportunity to be around what was I loved doing," said Ozzie Smith.  "I see myself as a guy who can offer guys an opportunity to sit and talk about the wars I've been through.  And the wars they have before them."
