CLEVELAND — Omar Vizquel knows he'll hang up his magical glove one day soon. He's putting it off as long as his body allows.
Weeks away from turning 45, Vizquel is still a major leaguer long after many former teammates have retired or begun new careers. Without a contract for the first time in 24 years, Vizquel accepted an invitation from Toronto in January to go to training camp and made the Blue Jays' roster as a backup infielder.
On Thursday, it was fitting the ageless Vizquel recorded the final putout — at first base — to end the longest opening-day game in major league history. Vizquel wants to manage one day, and hopes to begin the next chapter of his life with the Indians, the he starred with for 11 seasons.
