I always have admired Omar Vizquel. IMO he is a great fielding shortstop. At bat he was never spectacular except for one career year in 1999 when he hit .333. Somehow his fielding suffered then when he posted one of his lowest fielding percentages: .976. Even at 41, when I saw him play with the Giants he was still a good fielder.
A life time .272 hitter and a lifetime .985 fielder in a 20+ year career.
As far as I am concerned he should be enshrined in Cooperstown.
What do you think? Does he belong in the HOF and if so, on the first ballot?
