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 CSNBayArea.com 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.).
