The Baseball Hall of Fame released its official 2023 ballot on Monday. Members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) will have until Dec. 23 to finalize and submit their ballots before an official announcement is made on Tuesday, Jan. 24 in 2023.

One former Cleveland Guardians Gold Glove infielder is on the ballot for the sixth consecutive year.

That player is 11-time Gold Glove winner Omar Vizquel. One of the most slick-fielding infielders of his generation, Vizquel spent 11 of his 24-year MLB career in Cleveland. Eight of those seasons came during an impressive nine-year stretch walking away with the Gold Glove award as baseball's best defensive shortstop.

While Vizquel was lauded for his defense, he brought an impressive offensive approach to the ballpark each and every day. The three-time All-Star collected 2,877 hits with 404 stolen bases.

A player is not enshrined into Cooperstown until he earns at least 75% of the votes on a particular ballot. Players who receiver between 5% and 75% of the votes can hang on the ballot for 10 years.
