Vizquel makes historic appearance
Vet becomes only third player to play short after turning 42

Vizquel is the Rangers' utility infielder, but manager Ron Washington said he has no plans to give either second baseman Ian Kinsler or third baseman Michael Young a day off in the immediate future."Kins doesn't look like he's tired, and Michael doesn't look like he's tired yet," Washington said. Vizquel did relieve Young at third base for a couple of innings on April 17 against the Royals, the first time Vizquel has played that position in a Major League game. But he has yet to replace Kinsler at second base. Vizquel was 2-for-4 at the plate in all three of his previous starts at shortstop this season.
