WATCH: Manny Ramirez has a really bad golf swing
Just because you can hit 555 career home runs, doesn’t mean you can hit a golf ball down the middle of the fairway. Or on the fairway. Or straight. Or barely out of the tee box. Or with any sort of form. Ten-time All-Star OF and DH Manny Ramirez apparently never got hooked by the game of golf (despite 19 years of spring training in sunny Arizona or Florida). Check out this ugly swing, then burn the tape so you don’t learn any bad habits (via MLB.com)
No comment on the colorful shoes, either. Ramirez was participating with former Boston Red Sox teammate David Ortiz in his seventh annual celebrity golf tournament to benefit his children’s fund. Check out a longer video of the event via this link.
Manny was recently seen still mashing a baseball somewhere in the Dominican. Does he still have one subset of a season left to contribute? Don’t be surprised to see him in the Cactus or Grapefruit Leagues. But not going anywhere near golf clubs!
