Today, October 3rd, is the last game in the 24 year career of shortstop Omar Vizquel. In that career, Vizquel has won 11 Gold Gloves, nine of them won in a row. He has more hits than Babe Ruth, despite being known primarily as a defensive player.
And while he won two less Gold Gloves than Ozzie Smith of the Cardinals, has has 80 career home runs to Ozzie’s 28. He also has more RBIs. In fairness, he has 6 seasons more under his belt.
I know some people will disagree with me, but I think Omar Vizquel should be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
