Ozzie Smith said that young players today need to learn sportsmanship and to stop other players from bullying new and weaker players in initiations called hazing. â€œYou have to use a little restraint and a little common sense too,â€ said Smith. â€œSome guys are never going to understand how not to take things too far. Youâ€™re always going to have those kind of people. But then you also have people around that are smart enough to say, â€œHey, things are getting out of hand.â€
