Now That's Dedication

San Francisco Giants veteran Omar Vizquel set the big league record for most games played at shortstop after a doubleheader against the Florida Marlins Sunday.

These things tend to happen with old people. Nevertheless, we are impressed with the 11-time Gold Glover's resilience and dedication.

The second game of the twin bill marked game #2,584 for the 41-year-old Vizquel, surpassing Hall of Famer and fellow Venezuelan .

Way to go, buddy! You can totally retire now.
