Manny Ramirez hit 555 home runs over his 19-year Major League career. The former Indians, Red Sox, Dodgers, White Sox, and Rays slugger belted the first home run of his Taiwan baseball career with the EDA Rhinos this morning. It appears as though the Taiwanese crowd rather enjoyed this moonshot to center field.
Mark it down in the history books; Manny Ramirez notched his first career hit with the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan. Ramirez went 2-for-3 with two singles in his Taiwanese debut. Just Manny being Manny, or: 曼尼是曼尼
The above video clip shows how far the Blue Jays have come, as the Jays used to cover over the 500 level seats they were never going to sell, a habit they kicked quite quickly.
Are the above two “paragraphs” just window dressing for an opportunity to post Manny Ramirez absolutely destroying a Chris Carpenter (!!!) offering into the fifth deck, high above the starred mark where Jose Canseco once cranked one as a member of the Jays (!!!)? Of course they are! DINGERS!
