Curt Smith will play his eighth season  with the Lincoln Saltdogs in 2021.

The Lincoln Saltdogs signed Curt Smith for a franchise-record eighth season, the team announced Thursday.

Smith, 34, first played for the Saltdogs in 2011, and had planned to play last year before the COVID-19 shutdown.

“Curt has been with us for a long time and is one of the most consistent players all-time for the Saltdogs,” said Charlie Meyer, the Saltdogs' president and general manager. “He comes to the park each and every day with a great attitude and is a true leader in the clubhouse.”

Smith, who is from Willemsted, Curacao, has played in 578 games as a Saltdog, batting .314. He's among the franchise leaders with 701 hits (second), 340 runs (second), 130 doubles (third), 86 homers (second), 390 RBIs (second) and 224 walks (first).

Smith has played 12 seasons of pro baseball in the United States and also has a long career playing for the Netherlands national team.

The Saltdogs will open the 2021 season May 18, and the first game at Haymarket Park is scheduled for May 25.
