About Manny Ramirez
Manny Ramirez net worth is estimated at $110 million, making him one of the richest professional baseball players of all time. This is not an accident: he is also one of the greatest. Manny‘s career highlights, titles and accolades include 12× All-Star, 2× World Series champion, World Series MVP, 9× Silver Slugger Award, 2× AL Hank Aaron Award, AL batting champion, AL home run champion and MLB record 29 career postseason home runs. But the huge Manny Ramirez net worth and his professional achievements are not the only reasons why media has paid so much attention to him. The athlete is also known for his quirky, scandalous behaviour which led to the popularization of the phrase “Manny Being Manny” or “Manny Moments”. The incident that go under these phrases include the time when he spiked alcohol with Viagra and then included his teammates into drinking it or when he sold his barbeque on e-bay (most people do that to earn an extra dollar, but we all know this could not have been Manny’s motive). So let’s discuss his personal and professional life in greater detail.
Manny was born in Dominican Republic and spent the first thirteen years of his life there. Than in 1985 he immigrated to the United States alongside with his parents. However it was only in 2004, after almost twenty years spent in this country, that the athlete became an American Citizenship. When he was about to start playing his first game as an American, Ramirez ran into the field holding a small American flag and planted it into the corner of the field. Meanwhile the crowd in the stadium was giving him a standing ovation. But let’s get back to his early life… According to those who knew him, Manny was fascinated with baseball ever since he was a little kid living in Dominican Republic and continued playing it after moving to the United States. While living in Manhattan, the would-be millionaire attended George Washington High School. It is no secret that studies had not been going so well for him: Manny left the school at the age 19 and still without a diploma. However he did not waste the time at school for nothing: he led his school team to three straight division championships and in 1991 earned the name of New York City Public School Player of the Year.
