Omar Vizquel is widely considered one of the best shortstops in the history of baseball. He was well known for his spectacular fielding, clutch hitting, smart baserunning . . . and his quick wit around the clubhouse. His remarkable streak of nine consecutive Gold Glove awards for fielding excellence set an American League record. He won 11 Gold Glove awards in total. He was selected for three All-Star teams and appeared in two World Series.
