[12/2/2016] Manny Ramirez talking to Island League’s Kochi

According to a report by Nikkan Sports, Manny Ramirez is interested in playing baseball in Japan. The Shikoku Island League’s Kochi Fighting Dogs are currently talking to Ramirez’s agent about a possible contract.

It all started on November 11 when his agent and a Kochi player (infielder from overseas) approached the Fighting Dogs and asked if they might be interested in Ramirez. Kochi is open to the idea of signing the forty-four-year-old as a player, not a coach.
