#13 - Ozzie Guillen

Not many players have worn #13. I guess that most players are superstitious. As much as I'd like to make a case for Antonio Osuna or Harry Chappas, this spot goes to the current manager and resident loudmouth, Ozzie Guillen.

He won AL Rookie of the Year in 1985. He appeared in three All-Star appearances with the White Sox. One in 1988 and the others in 1990 and 1991. In 1990, he was briefly considered for AL MVP and won the Gold Glove at shortstop.

From 1985 until 1997, Ozzie was the face of the team. He was always good for a quote and loved to talk to the media. Some things never change. The thing I will always remember Ozzie for was one of his most embarrassing moments. He was caught off guard by the hidden ball trick not once, but twice in the span of a week.
