The family game: Smiths cherishing double senior season

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Once this spring sports season is over, Shawn and Dayna Smith deserve a nice, long staycation.

The Smiths have put down a lot of miles the past few years going all over the country to watch their three children play what can only be called the family sport.

Shawn's love of baseball goes way back. He was an outstanding player in his younger days, playing at Southern Miss, where he met Dayna, a cheerleader for the Golden Eagles, before serving as a scout in the Chicago Cubs organization for a few years and getting into coaching.
