Quote to note

"I remember Omar from when he played for the Leones del Caracas. He was probably 18 and he couldn't hit the ball out of the infield. But you could see a kid that, it's like he didn't need a glove at shortstop. And then you look up a couple years later and it's Omar Vizquel. Gold Glove. Good hitter. So it's kind of interesting to watch him grow into who he [became]. Because he was so young, playing in a very advanced league at the time. It was pretty incredible." -- Francona on former Tribe shortstop Omar Vizquel, who will be inducted into the Indians Hall of Fame on Saturday.
