To you Armada fans,

What happened to Bud Smith ?? I thought he was going to be the highlight to the GBL season with all that experience etc..

I saw he was on then off the "Inactive List" and now he has "Retired"
Just wondering if you guys have any further info??

No Idea... This is the first I have heard of it. I may have a call into one of the players tomorrow and find out?:confused:

he was tired of getting injured. It was one thing after another and he just keep the injuries away. I know he was having injury issues in the off season and wanted this year to be really good, I think the frustration just kicked in and he decided to call it a career. We are quite bummed he is gone.

I talked to him last Tuesday and I had my 19-month-old daughter with me. We talked about parenthood since he has a 9-month-old son. He said he watches his baby every day until 4 p.m. when he had to get to the ballpark. So I don't know if that played a factor in his decision, but I can understand if it did.

family would be a perfectly good reason as any.
