[February 26, 2010]  GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Omar Vizquel's wish list is impressive: he's already held an anaconda by the tail and donned a matador's outfit in a first step toward bullfighting.

FHardwarelying in an F-16 and sky diving are also on his radar.

First, though, there's more baseball ahead for the 42-year-old infielder. This time with the Chicago White Sox, who are managed by his fellow Venezuelean Ozzie Guillen.

Vizquel can't wear his familiar No. 13 because Guillen already has it and won't give it up. So he went to yet another countryman who played shortstop in Chicago, Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio, and got his blessing and his permission to unretire No. 11 and wear it this season.
