Omar Vizquel picks ground ball at 1st base because he is awesome

Yup, Omar still has it.

Once upon a time, Detroit Tigers first base coach Omar Vizquel played shortstop in the major leagues. Word is he was even pretty good at it. He showed off some of his range on Wednesday.

Based on some of the defense we’ve seen this season, the Tigers could probably still use his glove. After all, 49 is the new 39.

And let’s be honest, he can’t be any worse than Mike Aviles.
