Omar Vizquel Autographs
Omar Enrique Vizquel González was born on April 24, 1967 in Caracas, Venezuela and is an active shortstop in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox. He is one of the oldest active players in the league. Starting his career in Venezuela with Leones del Caracas in the Venezuelan Winter League, Vizquel is regarded as one of baseball's all- time best fielding shortstops. He won nine consecutive Gold Gloves awards from 1993- 2001, and another two in 2005 and 2006. Tying Cal Ripken 's AL record, since surpassed, for most consecutive games at shortstop without an error, he currently has the highest career fielding percentage for a shortstop of all- time. He also surpassed Luis Aparicio in May 25, 2008, becoming the all- time leader in double plays made while being a shortstop. Vizquel made his debut in the MLB when he signed with the Seattle Mariners on April 3, 1989. From the Mariners, he was traded to the Indians in 1993 .With second baseman Roberto Alomar , they were considered as one of the top defensive duos of all time. During his stint with the Indians, the team made it to the World Series twice. One of Vizquel's notable feats was the game against the Mariners recording the biggest comeback in history and ended with the Indians' win. He continued to reach career highs in 2002 but was cut short due to a knee injury. In one of the few games he appeared in 2003, Vizquel caught Tigers' pitcher Steve Avery by surprise when he had a straight steal of home, this made without a throw. He had an arthroscopic knee surgery in 2008 and when he returned to the field, he erased any doubts on his skills by stealing home against Athletics' pitcher, Greg Smith. Vizquel has garnered many awards throughout his entire career and went on to co- write his autobiography together with Bob Dyer. A quote on this book caused a much publicized and long feud with friend and former teammate José Mesa. Vizquel is also active in community service and charitable works, serving as spokesperson for several charitable institutions.
