Boston Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez has come a long way during his 13-year career in the major leagues.

Ramirez started his career with the Red Sox after signing as an international free agent in 2000, and he made his major league debut in 2005. Since then, he has played for the Florida Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers before returning to Boston prior to the 2015 season.

Red Sox team historian Gordon Edes sat down with Ramirez in an exclusive interview in a three-part series.

Check out the first part in the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Men’s Wearhouse.

The second and third parts will air Thursday and Friday, respectively, during NESN’s Red Sox pregame coverage.
