A great silhouette shot of Omar Vizquel of the Toronto Blue Jays getting ready to go up to bat against the White Sox.

Currently, the 45-year old Vizquel is the second oldest player in the Major Leagues, behind Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer. There’s little doubt that Vizquel will reach the Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, his .985 career fielding percentage is the highest of all-time for a shortstop in Major League history. He recently passed Brooks Robinson for sole possession of 43rd on the career list with 2,850 hits (and counting). Vizquel hints that after 24 years in the Majors this might be his last year before retiring.
