The former player in major league baseball Manny Ramirez still has the sacred fire at the age of 47 years, and he hoped, moreover, to carve a place within a professional team from Taiwan this year.
Having evolved within the big leagues for the last time with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011, Ramirez wants to play in the Chinese Professional Baseball League, who will celebrate his 48th birthday on may 30. This circuit is composed of five formations and is part of the first organizations which have resumed their activities as a result of the crisis of the COVID-19.
“My goal for 2020 is to secure a place in the league. I have worked hard in the rectangle of batting to be able to compete again,” said the former star of the Boston Red Sox to the newspaper Taiwan Times.
Ramirez has already evolved in the soil of taiwan, because in 2013, he found himself with the EDL Rhinos (now Fubon Guardians). He had accumulated eight circuits and 43 rbis in 49 meetings, while maintaining a batting average of ,352.
The one who lives in south Florida with his wife and three children had also confirmed having received offers to play in the Atlantic League. In 19 seasons in the majors, he has hit 555 circuits and hit for ,312, winning two world Series with the Red Sox, in 2004 and 2007.
