Ozzie Guillen (1987 – Topps #89)

Oswaldo Jose “Ozzie” Guillen Barrios was a Venezuelan Shortstop (mostly for the Chicago White Sox,  1985 – ‘97),  before Managing the White Sox (2004 – ’11) to their 2005 World Series title.  He also spent the latter years of his 16 season career with the Orioles, Braves and Devil Rays. With the White Sox, as a player, he was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1985 and a 3-time All-Star. ‘Ozzie’ was AL Manager of the Year in the 2005 championship year.  He often spoke so fast you couldn’t understand a word he said, but he was, obviously, a good Manager. (Currently 12 years managing) In 2012 he moved south to become Manager of the Miami Marlins.
