The Top 10 Greatest Cleveland Indians of All-Time: No. 8 Manny Ramirez

0

Coming in at number eight on the countdown is the ever-so-weird Manny Ramirez. Manny was drafted by the Tribe in the 1st round of the 1991 draft. Manny did not make his debut with the Tribe until 1993. Over the next seven years, Ramirez would put up some staggering numbers. Had 236 homers and 804 RBI in 967 games for Indians, including team-record 165 RBI in 1999, when he hit .333 with career-highs of 44 homers and 131 runs. The four-time all-star had 127 homers and 432 RBI in 415 games over last three seasons.

Manny had some memorable moments in a Tribe uniform. Especially during the 1995 season. His signature moment of that season came against the Oakland A’s when he hit a moonshot off Dennis Eckersely, leaving Eckersely saying the word “Wow!” His second signature moment of that season came in the ALCS against the Mariners. In Game 2, Ramirez would hit two home runs and the Indians would go on to win that game and the series sending the Tribe to their first World Series in 47 years.

Manny would go on to have a great career winning two World Championships with the Red Sox. He would also become a member of the 600 Home-Run club. “Manny being Manny” all started in Cleveland.
