Omar Vizquel: The Slick-fielding Shortstop Who Enjoyed Taking Home Movies, Too
Omar Vizquel has played 23 seasons in the Majors and is bidding this spring training to play a 24th with the Blue Jays. He was the premier fielding shortstop in the Big Leagues during his prime and has piled p 2,841 hits -- the stuff that could lead to a Hall of Fame entry. He started with the Mariners, was most well-known for days with the Indians and also played for the Giants, Rangers and White Sox.
But I bet you didn't know that Omar loved taking home movies. Just look at his 1993 Upper Deck card.
