Dodgers News: Brewers scoreboard operator has fun with Will Smith – Inside the Dodgers
In case you haven’t heard, Dodgers catcher Will Smith isn’t the only famous Will Smith in the world. He probably overtook Astros reliever Will Smith as baseball’s most famous Will Smith, but there’s a certain singer/actor/slapper with that name who will be hard to top.
And the Hollywood Smith made big waves earlier this year when, after taking offense at a Chris Rock joke at the Oscars, he took the stage and slapped Rock in the face.
Well, there’s nothing an MLB scorecard operator loves more than a moderately funny joke. They are the dads of the MLB world. So it’s no surprise that the scoreboard operator at American Family Field in Milwaukee decided to have some fun with the Dodgers wide receiver.

Under Smith’s name and next to his photo, it reads: “Player Trivia: Never attended the Oscars.
This anecdote is probably true, although we haven’t checked with Will to confirm. The Oscars are usually held in mid-February, around the time pitchers and catchers show up for spring training.
Even though Baseball Will attended the awards, it seems extraordinary that he got caught up in the kind of controversy actor Will did. Our Will is rather even-tempered and gentle, with a personality much more predisposed to watching the Oscars at home on his couch than in the front row of the theater.
But just in case, it might be a good idea for all dashboard operators to keep his name out of their mouths (and their dashboards).
