Where've you gone, Luis Aparicio?

CHICAGO -- There was nothing that set apart Luis Aparicio's final season from the previous 17, other than this time when he turned in his uniform he was never given another one.

There was no bitterness, no curiosity over why the phone didn't ring, and without hesitation he wrapped up his baseball life and returned to his native Venezuela.

"I just got my papers and went home," he said.

Just like that, no questions asked. The passion for basball, however, hadn't quite been extinguished.

"My first two years I really missed the game," said Aparicio, who hit .271 with 49 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in his final season. "But your time is going to come, so I just take it the way you're supposed to take it. I don't say I don't miss it ... I always follow baseball."

Aparicio has lived in Venezuela since his retirement, occasionally returning to the United States to visit one of his sons who lives in Baltimore, where Aparicio played from 1963-67.
