Omar Vizquel says farewell to Fenway in style

Toronto infielder Omar Vizquel played his final game at Fenway Park, going 0 for 2 with two sacrifice flies.

The 45-year-old Vizquel has 2,870 hits and has scored 1,443 runs in his career. He played 87 games at Fenway in his career.

“A lot of great memories in this place, a lot of playoffs,” Vizquel said. “I remember when I was with the Cleveland Indians how great the games were and the most special moment was when I was an All-Star [in 1999] and Ted Williams was on the mound and all the players gathered around him and it was a very emotional moment for me. It was very nice.

“Boston has a lot of history about the game and a lot of great players have played in this park and it was a special moment for me to be here, too.”
