Manny Ramirez still hasn’t given up on returning to the big leagues, but that’s never going to happen and in the meantime his son, Manny Ramirez Jr., is ready to start playing Division I college baseball.

Casey Pratt of reports that the 18-year-old Ramirez Jr., a 6-foot-4 first baseman, is headed to the University of San Francisco.

Here’s what USF head coach Nino Giarratano told Pratt about Ramirez Jr.:

He is a very talented hitter, has a chance to hit in the middle of our line-up, and provide us with a great approach as a hitter and defensive first baseman. The best part of Manny is how he handles himself as a person–he is very humble, driven, and competitive.

That’s just Manny (Jr.) being Manny (Jr.).

        So what? Parents are the Dominicans.

      • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 11:56 AM

        I thought Manny’s wife was Brazilian

      • pastabelly - Nov 22, 2013 at 2:17 PM

        okay, manny junior’s mom was a previous “relationship” of manny’s and not his brazillian wife.

      Does that little flag on his left shoulder looks like the American flag to you guys? Also look at his back it’s a DR for Dominican Republic.

        Well nobody dragged you here so get the hell out if you don’t like it.

      Jr is not college material! When he gets asked to hit the books to stay on the team he will quit just like his old man. None of Manny Ramirez offspring is college material.

    I hope for the sake of genetic balance that his mom is a pillar of common sense and maturity.

    He’s still Dominican . Regardless

    • indaburg - Nov 22, 2013 at 11:56 AM

      He’s American. His parents are Dominican.

      • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 11:59 AM

        Of course he’s American, but he’s Dominican too. I was born here and I don’t say I’m American.

      • indaburg - Nov 22, 2013 at 2:45 PM

        I was born in the US. My parents are Dominican. My passport is American. I vote in American elections. I pay American taxes. When I travel to the DR, they call me “La Americana.” I identify as American.

      • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 3:46 PM

        Dominican American.

    • fanofevilempire - Nov 22, 2013 at 2:44 PM

      who cares, I got in trouble for you wrong info.
      I’m getting out of here, too many trouble makers.

    good place for him. now he can get the best juice from not only his dad but the people who built barry bonds!

  5. phillysports1 - Nov 22, 2013 at 11:47 AM

    Or it’s easier if he can get juice from the people that built Ryan Braun !

    What the hell ? Alex rios was born in ALABAMA ! He’s still Puerto Rican . He actually played for Puerto Rico in the WBC.

    • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 12:15 PM

      I know. Americans are gringos for me.

      • sportsmanspark - Nov 22, 2013 at 1:13 PM

        Then get the hell out. I have always supported people who retain their culture in our country as we are all immigrants in some form. But, to call us gringos and then probably wonder why there is still racism or profiling against Latin-American or hispanic peoples? GTFOH.

      • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 1:29 PM

        @sportsmanspark Let’s squash this, this is kind of dumb. Who cares we’re all human beings :)

    Hopefully for his sake he has the talent of his dad, but not the ignorance of his dad.

  8. phillysports1 - Nov 22, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    I don’t use any kinda of racial slur but I do believe in racism !!!! It’s all over America . I’m a Dominican , if you look at me you can obviously tell I’m hispanic . I stopped at a gas station one night , all kinds of people around were Americans ( white ). I went inside to pay for gas and dude told me they were close .Mind you people were constantly coming in and out for gas. I know you guys might not care but man this world we’re living end it’s crazy lol


    • aphillieated - Nov 22, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      Wow! That was rude.

    • fanofevilempire - Nov 22, 2013 at 2:53 PM

      one of the first things my dad did after landing in NYC was sign up with the Army in 1966
      and he became a citizen soon after and when people tell me go back to my country I laugh.
      what can you do this is the society we live, the good thing is not ALL people are racists.
      I gave you a thumbs up.

      Maybe he was annoyed with your frequent posts about the same subject filled with grammatical errors.
