We know we haven't see Manny in the MLB, but this might be a little inexcusable. Whether it’s the two World Series titles he helped bring to Boston, all the home runs he mashed over his career, you cannot forget what Manny looks like.
Ramirez played and coached for the Sydney Blue Sox last season, and is still there as he gets ready for next season. When he saw a guy with a Red Sox hat on at a local restaurant, he approached the young man to spark up a conversation. The only problem was, the kid had no idea who Manny was.
The video was posted on to TMZ, courtesy of a Tik Tok video by Rachel Balkovec, who works for the Blue Sox. When Manny asked the guy who his favorite player was, the supposed Red Sox fan got a little standoffish.
“Are you serious?! It’s my girlfriend,” he replied. “Why?”
Ramirez, an eight-time All-Star with the Red Sox and 2004 World Series MVP, ended up walking away, giving the kid another compliment on his hat.
