We remember the great Luis Aparicio.    He was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela on this day in 1934.    

Luis broke with the White Sox in 1956 and was selected AL Rookie of the Year.    He led the AL in stolen bases from 1956 to 1964.      Aparicio played with Baltimore when they won the 1966 World Series and the Chicago White Sox who lost to the LA Dodgers in 1959.

Overall, Aparicio hit .262 with 2,677 hits in 2,599 games.    We remember him for his amazing glove and speed.  

Luis was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1984.
