Overview

Among the most prolific sluggers in the history of Major League Baseball, Manny Ramirez possesses a rare combination of quick hands and smooth, powerful stroke that has made him one of the most productive hitters of his generation. Identified as a teenager as a potential superstar, Ramirez developed his immense talent into a successful career, highlighted by World Series championships, including the astonishing Boston Red Sox win in 2004.

Controversial yet endearing, Manny Ramirez remains an enormously important and compelling figure in the world of sports.
