St. Louis, MO Jan. 8, 2002 (AP)--Ozzie Smith carried the Olympic flame the same day his election to baseball's Hall of Fame was announced, and Rams quarterback Kurt Warner helped him light a cauldron Tuesday.

Smith brought the flame into downtown's Kiener Plaza, greeted by several thousand people chanting "Ozzie! Ozzie!''

"I'm excited. It's a busy day. It's kind of amazing how it all came together,'' Smith said.

He and Warner lit a cauldron celebrating the flame's short stay in the Gateway City, while fireworks lit the sky over the Mississippi River.

The flame heads westbound Wednesday, continuing its 65-day journey through 46 states to Salt Lake City for the Feb. 8-24 Winter Games.
