PHOTO: Celebrate Omar Vizquel's 45th Birthday With This Classic Photo From Sports Illustrated

The Twitter account, @SI_Vault, is a must-follow for sports fans. Andy Gray's tweets consistently deliver classic throwback photos from the Sports Illustrated archives and on Wednesday, Gray sent out a picture of Omar Vizquel to celebrate his 45th birthday. While it may be from his final season with the Tribe, well after the contending glory days in which he was a centerpiece of an All-Star roster, it's still nostalgic to see Omar in an Indians uniform. In this pic from the archives, he's paying homage to the timeless movie Major League, impersonating Pedro Cerrano's idol Jobu.

And of course, Jobu got nostalgic as well:
