Manny Ramirez, 44, is still up to play for some more Baseball… as he will be heading to play in Japan next season. The Shikoku Island League plus, Kochi Fighting Dogs (an independent league team), have said to be in contact with the former Major league outfielder, and have agreed on a deal (one-year deal), according to the report. Manny Ramirez will join Julio Franco (Ishikawa Million Stars, previously) as one of the well known stars coming from the Major leagues to play in Japan’s independent league.

Manny Ramirez recently played overseas with the EDA Rhinos in the CPBL (Chinese Professional Baseball League) in Taiwan back in 2013. He eventually returned in the US minor leagues after a short stint in their country despite overwhelming interest from different organizations in the NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball), and KBO (Korean Baseball Organization) leagues.

Manny Ramirez played for 19 years there at the Major league level, most notably with the Boston Red Sox, he currently owns a batting line of .312/.411/.485 with 555 homeruns and 1831 RBI in 2302 games played (9774 PA, along with 8244 AB) in his big league career… With his popularity, there is no doubt in mind the Kochi Fighting Dogs will be having regular sell-outs for the upcoming regular season.

  1. The Japanese are big fans of Charlie Chaplin, so they should get a kick out of Manny’s fielding.

    I’m not going hunting for the logo and stadium info for a “professional” (ie, amateur masquerading as professional) team. I’m also not especially impressed by the team name “Fighting Dogs,” referencing a cruel and barbaric excuse for a “sport” which is popular among rabble as well as rich protuberant genitalia (like a certain Atlanta quarterback) with nothing better to do with their money. But here’s a map of western Japan so you’ll at least know where Shikoku is; Kochi is on its south central coast, and the island is the second most consistently rural of Japan’s main islands after Hokkaido.

    1. The one time we had a seven person cut off is how you define his illustrious career? Really? I feel that he is not becoming his caricature and it is indefensible in this day and age to do so.

      WHAT? You meant Manny? Well, he could hit a little bit and his escapades in left field were just shy of indifferent, but he made me love him and I think he’s worthy of the HOF.

      But alas, I believe he won’t make it because of the Murray Chasse and the likeminded voters for fucking him just because he failed a pregnancy test.
