44-year-old Vizquel eager to play again in 2012
CLEVELAND (AP) - Omar Vizquel wants to return for a 24th season in the major leagues.
The 44-year-old shortstop said Wednesday that he still loves the game, believes he can continue to perform at a good level and intends to play for some team.
In 58 games as a utility infielder for the Chicago White Sox, the three-time All-Star and 11-time Gold Glove winner is hitting .251.
Vizquel said climbing up the all-time leaderboard in various categories is not as important to him as being able to contribute to a team with postseason hopes.
Vizquel, who spent 10 years in the prime of his career in Cleveland from 1994 through 2003, entered the day with 2,841 hits. That’s 45th all-time, one in back of Ivan Rodriguez and seven behind Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson.
