[4/20/2017] Manny Ramirez’s contract with Kochi ends in July

The Kochi Fighting Dogs announced on April 20 that their contract with Manny Ramirez will expire at the end of July. Kochi decided to release the information because they received a lot of inquiries and because they want as many people to see him play in Japan as possible.

The Shikoku Island League plus season is split into two halves: April/May and August/September. There are no regular season games during June/July. Additionally, NPB teams have until the end of July to sign new players.

Kochi is currently in discussions with Ramirez about the schedule in June/July. They are also exploring the possibility of a contract extension beyond July.
