WSC Birth Years: Pablo Ozuna

Card #80 - Pablo Ozuna

Born: August 25, 1974

During his four seasons with the White Sox, Pablo had a knack for getting into the game. He could play all four infield positions and all three outfield spots but he usually played at third or second base.

Ozuna's best known game was during the second game of the 2005 ALCS against the Angels. He pinch ran for A.J. Pierzynski, after his controversial dropped third strike, and ended up scoring the winning run by stealing second and coming home on a Joe Crede double. That one play shifted momentum to the ChiSox, who went on to win the rest of their playoff games.

Pablo's contributions to the Pale Hose might have been greater had he not been injured in 2007. It was a struggle after the injury and in July 2008, Ozuna was designated for assignment.
