When Andrew Romine was a kid, his father used to tell him to watch Omar Vizquel for everything he needed to know about how to play shortstop.
Now, the Angels backup infielder can do better. Vizquel is in camp with the Angels as a coach. Although he was hired last month to be a roving minor league infield instructor, Vizquel is in big league camp until minor league camp starts Mar. 3.

"It's going to be awesome," Romine said Saturday, before the second full-squad workout of the spring. "We're going to get a wealth of knowledge from him. Just to be able to pick his brain is going to be great."
Even a veteran like Erick Aybar, who has played parts of seven years in the majors and won a Gold Glove, said he is excited to have Vizquel around.
"He is the best shortstop in the last 20 years," Aybar said. "When you have someone around like Vizquel, that means everything to us."
Vizquel, 45, is just beginning his post-playing career. He played last season for the Toronto Blue Jays, his 24th year in the majors. He said he had planned to begin retirement by staying at home in Seattle with his family, but the Angels called last month with an opportunity he felt he couldn't refuse.
"I wanted to get a job where I had some flexibility and this opportunity came up and I couldn't let it go by," Vizquel said. "They gave me a lot of free time where I can spend time with my family and still go back to the game to keep my mind sharp. It's great they gave me this opportunity."
Vizquel has said for years his ultimate goal is to become a major league manager, and that remains true. He said the Angels told him he might get to fill in managing a few minor league games during the season.
"This guy was an incredible player, not just from the physical side, but as some of his skills started to erode, which is a natural process, he became a better player," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He's peeled the paint off this game. There is no doubt, with his respect and the way he loved the game, he could be a manager."
