The park is named after Ernest Maynard "Ernie" Smith, one of the pioneers in live sports announcing from the mid-1920's into the 1950's. His enthusiastic, detailed descriptions earned him a loyal following, and his highly recognizable voice could be heard in homes, backyards and gas stations throughout the Bay Area.
