Smith talked about his strengths as a player and the things he needs additional work on.
"I still have a lot of improvement to make but I'm getting there through a lot of practice," said Smith. "My fielding is my strength but my hitting still needs a little work. I just need to get my timing down and face better pitching."
Dustin Smith, who plays shortstop and pitches, is 6-1 and weighs 170 pounds. He is a player to watch this coming season.
