Former major leaguer Manny Ramirez still can rake.
Ramirez currently plays for the Kochi Island Fighting Dogs of Japan’s independent Shikoku Island League and is living the baseball high-life, which includes unlimited sushi and optional practices.
But we doubt the home run calls are as amazing as the ones he got when he was playing for the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan four years ago.
Here’s a clip of Ramirez going yard in 2013, and it’s accompanied by what might be the greatest home run call of all time.
“This ball is long gone just like the ex-girlfriend who will never return,” the announcer said, as transcribed by USA TODAY’s For The Win.
We hope the play-by-play announcer has an even better contract than Ramirez does.
