SAN FRANCISCO -- Omar Vizquel wants to go to the World Series that starts Wednesday at AT&T Park.

"It's the first time I want to go," said the former Giants shortstop said Tuesday. "I don't know how to go about it."

Vizquel, 45, who retired this month after four decades in the majors, wants to watch a series that includes nine compatriots from Venezuela, including stars Marco Scutaro, Pablo Sandoval and Miguel Cabrera.

Vizquel, one of the game's best-fielding shortstops, planned to fly to the Bay Area on Wednesday and hope to get tickets. He didn't want to contact the Venezuelan players such as protégé Scutaro because "I know they have to concentrate on the game."

He added, "I just don't like to bother people."

But after an inquiry from this newspaper Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said Vizquel need not worry about tickets.

"We'll contact him," she said.
