Manny Ramirez Hits First Home Run In Taiwan, Caused Broadcaster Boner [VIDEO]

‚ By 

We’ve been following Manny Ramirez and his Taiwanese exploits over the past few weeks. They were going nuts over anything and everything the slugger was doing. If he got a standing ovation for scoring from first, just think how bonkers things would get when Manny blasts a home run.

He did just that in his most recent game with the EDA Rhinos.

In the 7th inning, with his Rhinos down 8-4, Manny took a pitch to deep center. Both Manny and the crowd seemed to be unsure whether or not he had gotten enough of it.

The ball barely cleared the wall, but if you think that stopped the announcer from having a home run induced orgasm you’ve got another thing coming.

Elation. Joy. Euphoria. Mayhem. All of those words and more could describe the feeling inside that stadium. Between the epic home run call, the crowd’s eruption and Manny’s nonchalance, this truly was a magical moment in baseball history.

All I understood is “Hahahaha” at 10 seconds. And “MAAAAAANY RAMIIREEEZZZ” at like 1:23.

Classic. I think we just heard the Taiwanese version of Gus Johnson.
