48-Year-Old Manny Ramirez Is Back On The Baseball Field In Australia

Videos by OutKick

48-year-old retired athletes that made over $200 million and hit over 500 career homers are done with sports. Okay, maybe some golf. Not Manny Ramirez, as he’s lacing up his cleats in Australia with the Sidney Blue Sox. Can’t stop a man from playing the game he loves, but when is it enough? For Manny Ramirez, maybe never.

One thing about Manny Ramirez is that he’s always been box office. Whether he plays well on game day or not, he’s an attraction for the fans. Helps that he clearly embraces being a fan favorite. For fans of Major League Baseball, he’s a Hall of Fame level Bartolo Colon with dreads suited for a Head & Shoulders commercial.

The Blue Sox played today against the Melbourne Aces, but Manny didn’t see the field. He’s still their main attraction and should be expected to debut any day now. Manny is about to be Manny again.

  1. I loved watching Manny. Sometimes, when I’m relaxing with a beer and need a laugh, I still search for “Manny being Manny” on youtube………And aside from Manny’s antics, the guy was a hitting savant. the guy could roll out of bed, face a pitcher he’s never seen, and hit a double off the wall.
