Baseball Rebellion Swing Breakdown:

Manny Ramirez

With the Cleveland Indians being just one win away from their first World Series Championship since 1948, I can’t help but think back to the Indians of the 1990s. As I look back at their 1997 roster (the last time they reached the World Series), I realized the nightmare they must have been for opposing pitchers with the depth of talent they had throughout their lineup that included Jim Thome, David Justice, Sandy Alomar, Matt Williams, and Mannny Ramirez. Manny Ramirez was quickly developing into one of the league’s best young players and played a vital role in the success of the Cleveland Indians.

Manny later went on to break the curse of the Bambino and lead the Boston Red Sox to their first two World Series Championships since 1918. Over the course of Ramirez’ nineteen year career, he had a .312 batting average and hit 555 home runs. In the swing breakdown above, you will see the swing mechanics that allowed Manny to be Manny. Enjoy the rest of the World Series!
