Happy # 50 to Omar Vizquel



Omar Enrique (Gonzalez) Vizquel was born in Venezuela on this day in 1967.   He was too young to watch Luis Aparicio play in the major leagues but I'm sure that he heard a lot about him growing up.    Every kid in Venezuela knows about the great Aparicio.

Omar was an outstanding shortstop.   However, let's not overlook his bat:  .272 BA, 2,877 hits, 456 doubles and a very good .336 On Base Pct.

Will he make the Hall of Fame in a couple of years?   Probably not but he will eventually.
