Vizquel to wear Aparicio's No. 11
White Sox to un-retire Hall of Famer's number

But while the only native Venezuelan to be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame will not be coming out of retirement at age 75, his jersey will be back in action for the 2010 campaign.

The White Sox announced Monday that Aparicio has given his consent for Omar Vizquel to wear No. 11 in his first year with the White Sox, as the number will be un-retired by the organization for Vizquel to wear in tribute. Vizquel termed such largesse coming from his countryman as a "tremendous honor," speaking during a Monday afternoon press conference, and then went on to explain how the un-retirement of No. 11 came about.
