[edit] Biographical Information

Seth Smith was signed by the Colorado Rockies and scout Damon Iannelli as a 2nd round pick in the 2004 amateur draft.

Smith was traded to the San Diego Padres before the 2014 season and started his career with his new team in spectacular fashion, hitting a game-tying pinch homer against Brian Wilson of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 8th inning of his first game for his new team on March 30th. Thanks to his game-turning hit, the Padres went on to win the game, 3-1. On July 2nd, Smith signed a two-year extension with the Padres for $13 million; interestingly, the signing occured while the Padres had no General Manager, having fired Josh Byrnes a few days earlier.

In college, Smith was the backup quarterback to Eli Manning. ML teammate Todd Helton had been a backup in college to Eli's brother Peyton Manning.
