Here for the party


Omar Vizquel makes the price of admission worth every penny whenever he’s playing shortstop, but on Friday, he showed off some of his non-baseball talents for free in Lefty O’Doul Plaza at the second annual Fiesta Gigante, a festival featuring Latin music, food, crafts and other entertainment.

Vizquel showed up with catcher Eliezer Alfonzo and infielder Tomas De La Rosa to say hi to the crowd, but the Venezuelan couldn’t resist the chance to show off his impressive percussion and singing skills as well. He even sang a duet with Spanish-language broadcaster and former Giant Tito Fuentes, crafting lyrics that said "The Giants will win tonight" (which they did, by the way, with Matt Cain again flirting with a no-hitter).

Vizquel is also an amazing dancer, which comes as no surprise to those who’ve seen his fancy footwork on the field.

Take a look at some photos from the event.
