Synopsis: Omar Vizquel doesn't just make the tough plays look easy. He makes the toughest plays look fun.

Widely considered one of the best defensive shortstops in the history of baseball, he is often praised by teammates, opponents, and fans alike for working so hard at his game--and for obviously enjoying it so much.

His hard work has paid off. Omar has won an amazing nine consecutive Rawlings Gold Glove Awards and holds the highest career fielding percentage of anyone at the position. He has been selected for two American League All Star teams, has played in two World Series, and has been a key member of six Central Division Championship Cleveland Indians teams.

In this, his first book, Omar tells the story of his life in baseball, from the sandlots of Caracas, Venezuela, to Game Seven of the World Series and beyond.

Along the way he offers a candid look inside the locker room of those powerhouse Indians teams, shares anecdotes about fellow major league ballplayers, and gives plenty of lively opinions on the game they all play.

Omar also leads an interesting life off the field. He organized a high-profile fundraising effort to assist flood victims in his native Venezuela. He is an accomplished painter. He designed his own house. He has his own line of designer clothing, and he has even dabbled in music and stand-up comedy.

"The only way to find out what you truly enjoy is to try everything," he writes.

Baseball fans will truly enjoy getting to know this remarkable ballplayer. Honest and humorous, Omar! delivers the public and private sides of Omar Vizquel in a delightful double-play combination.

From the Back Cover: "Omar was a wonderful teammate, a guy you knew was going to give everything he had on a daily basis. His work ethic, his dedication to the game, and his love for the game come through in the book. Omar! rings true. This is the person I knew as a teammate and friend. Readers will get the inside story--what Omar felt, what Omar lived." -Orel Hershiser

"Omar! provides valuable insight into the petri dish that was the Indians locker room and the trials and triumphs of today's big leaguers, from the greatest glove-man I've ever seen--especially when he doesn't use it." -Bob Stevens, ESPN SportsCenter
