Smith was roundly booed by the fans when he failed to run out a double play ball in the first inning and was booed again in the top of the second when a pop fly fell in front of him in centerfield for a hit. As he returned to the dugout in the middle of the inning he doffed his cap mockingly to the fans then threw it into the dugout. He then walked straight to the clubhouse, g6t dressed and left the park.
