Manny Ramirez Shanks Ball On First-Ever Golf Swing (GIF)

Manny Ramirez hit 555 home runs in his Major League Baseball career, but that doesn’t mean he’s got the swinging motion down for every sport. Ramirez recently took part in David Ortiz’s 7th Annual Golf Classic, where he swung a golf club for the first time, according to CBSSports.com. It wasn’t pretty. Keep those elbows in, Manny.

I used to be one of the world's biggest Manny Ramirez apologists.  Now...dude just needs to give it up. You guessed it, the embattled star is, again, looking for another chance at a Major League contract.  Again. “Manny will always be able to hit,” the 12-time All-Star's personal hitting coach David Segui said last month. “He loves to play, so it wouldn’t surprise me...
