Bryn Nelson Smith (born August 11, 1955 in Marietta, Georgia, U.S.A.) is a former professional baseball player who pitched in the Major Leagues from 1981-1993.

Smith had a pair of 5-game winning streaks in 1985 and was picked Expo Player of the Month for July by Montreal baseball writers after a 3-1 record and 1.74 ERA.

In 1989 he became a subject of much good natured teasing when he complained in a Sports Illustrated article about the playing conditions in Montreal, which included the inconvenience of having to drive to Plattsburgh New York to buy Dorito chips.(Bryn gets birthday gifts; Paul Carbray. The Gazette. Montreal, Que.: Aug 12, 1989)

Smith was first winning pitcher in Colorado Rockies history, defeating Montreal, 11-4, on April 9, 1993.

Miscellaneous

According to the back of his 1990 Topps baseball card, Smith takes his first name from the initials of his grandfather, Baxter Robert Young Nisbet.[1] Bryn is also good friends with members of the band Rush. His mother worked in the publicity department at RKO Studios and dated Red Sox manager Ralph Houk and actors like Cary Grant and Tim Holt. She was introduced to her husband by Jane Russell. [1]
