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. Ramirez has also been viewed by many as a frustrating character, however, whose impressive record of accomplishments is tainted by unusual behavior and a suspension for using a banned performance-enhancing drug. Controversial yet endearing, Manny Ramirez remains an enormously important and compelling figure in the world of sports.
