Here are some Giants Gems for Marco Scutaro’s birthday from the 2012 Giants Media Guide – Happy Birthday Marco!

  • Marco Scutaro considers fellow Venezuelan Omar Vizquel his favorite baseball player and watched him often in Spring Training after signing with the Cleveland Indians as an amateur free agent in 1994.
  • Was born in San Felipe, Yaracuy, Venezuela.
  • Began playing baseball at age 6.
  • His father was born in Italy, so due to his Italian heritage he had the option of playing for Italy or Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic.  In both 2006 and 2009 he opted to represent Venezuela.
