3- OF Manny Ramirez
Time in Cleveland- (1993-2000)
Manny Ramirez is arguably the greatest hitter of the 1990s and early 2000s. Most of that time was spent with the Cleveland Indians.
Ramirez is third in team history with 236 home runs, eighth in RBIs (804), and first in OPS (.998, on-base percentage plus slugging percentage). He made six All-star games and won three Silver Slugger awards with the Tribe.
The “Manny Being Manny” phrase was coined by Tribe manager Mike Hargrove after the outfielder left a paycheck in his cleats.
Ramirez was a prime contributor to the eccentric Indians locker rooms of the 1990s. The “Manny Being Manny” phrase was coined by Tribe manager Mike Hargrove after the outfielder left a paycheck in his cleats.
His antics on and off the field combined with his incredible prowess in the batters box make him an unforgettable character for the game of baseball. He may have gone on to “bigger and better” things in Boston, but forget all that.
Manny Ramirez was a Cleveland Indian first and foremost.
