Manny Ramirez Is A 'Fighting Dog' For 2017 Season
Manny Ramirez—yes, that 44-year old guy who used to wear Carmine Hose—is negotiating a deal to play for the Kochi Fighting Dogs. The 'Dogs' are a team in the independent Shikoku Island League. Another former major leaguer who also played in this relatively obscure league was Julio Franco—who, by the way, is a spry 58-years-old as we write this. This is not Manny's first foray into Asian baseball—he suited up for the EDA Rhinos in the Chinese Professional Baseball League (Taiwan) in 2013. Hopefully, there is a convenient rest room area out in left field at the Fighting Dog stadium.
