Before debuting for the Chicago White Sox in the MLB, he was signed by the San Diego Padres as a free agent. In his home country, Ozzie was known as a quick-handed, light-hitting shortstop as were Luis Aparicio and Chico Carrasquel, among others. Unfortunately he didn’t make a single appearance for the Padres, and in 1984 he was sent to the Chicago White Sox with several other players traded for LaMarr Hoyt. He made his debut in 1985 for his new club, and won the American League Rookie of the Year as well as The Sporting News Rookie of the Year awards. He played particularly well until 1992, making it to All-Star games in 1988, 199, and 1991, and becoming known for his aggressive style of play. Unfortunately, this cost him greatly in 1992 when he suffered a season ending knee injury after crashing into Tim Raines. He returned in 1993, but his performance was never the same as his defensive game suffered in great way, so he focused on offense and posted numerous great plays until the end of his career. His contract expired in 1997, and in 1998 he signed with the Baltimore Orioles, but was soon released and joined the Atlanta Braves, but didn’t stay long in Atlanta either, as in 2000 he moved to Tampa, signing with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for the season. He retired with 1,993 games played, 1,764 hits, 28 home runs, 619 RBI and .264 batting average.

Soon after his playing career ended, Ozzie became a coach of the Montreal Expos, leading them in 2001 and 2002 seasons, while in 2003 he joined the Florida Marlins and won the World Series with them. After having tremendous success with the Marlins, he became manager of the White Sox in 2004, and in 2005 led them to the World Series finals, in which they defeated Houston Astros, to grant Ozzie the achievement of being the first Venezuelan manager to win the World Series. He managed White Sox until 2011, when after several disagreements with general manager Kenny Williams, he was released from the club and was soon unveiled as the manager of the Miami Marlins, which he managed through 2012 season.

Most recently, he became manager of the Tiburones de La Guaira of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League.

Aside from agressive play, Ozzie became known for his controversial statements, and throughout his career brought attention to himself with remarks about Jay Mariotti, a Chicago Sun-Times columnist, whom he called a fag, then statements about Fidel Castro and many other people and events as well.

Regarding his personal life, Ozzie has been married to Ibis Cardenas since 1983; the couple has three children together.
