WSC Birth Years: Manny Ramirez

Card #67 - Manny Ramirez

Born: May 30, 1972

Manny's presence in a lineup makes everyone around him that much better. On August 31, Manny stepped out onto the on deck circle and caused such a stir with the opposition that A.J. Pierzynski was able to hit a three run home run.

Making his official debut with the White Sox the next day, on September 1, 2010, Ramirez went one for three and was hit by a pitch right between the numbers on the back.

Manny is known as a character and should be quite a match for manager Ozzie Guillen, who is known for his own colorful antics. Whatever the final result, it should be interesting on the Southside in September.

The Red Sox were almost able to replace Manny's numbers after they dumped him. But, they couldn't come close to replacing the terror he put into the other teams just by being in the on-deck circle...or even just on the roster.

Enjoy him
