With the untimely departure of the fan favorite, the memories will last for a lifetime.
With the injury prone Dustin Pedroia back in the lineup, ( so they thought) Hanley Ramirez was officially released. After not finding a trade partner within the last 7 days after being designated for assignment, Red Sox nation had to say goodbye.
While we can’t say for sure how this all plays out, one thing for sure is he captivated the audiences at Fenway park as we all knew he would. For the fans, El Trece kept the fans smiling. Hanley, this part is for you!
With all the memories that left us in awe, we thank you! Especially hitting this walk off bomb off of Dellin Betances. The entire park was roaring after that sweet hit. You always were the go to guy, being the best hitter for average last postseason. ( .571 batting average.) You are having such a productive season, that you will become a huge asset to whoever signs you. There is much more to come for you this season.
When you came to the team in 2014, the pairing of you and David Ortiz sparked the clubhouse in ways it hasn’t seen before. It was electric! The charisma and patience you brought to the field everyday should stand as an example for players for years to come. While all good things come to an end, this book has a new chapter waiting to be written. As fans of the game, we are all excited to cheer you on as a former sox.
Baseball is a business, with that being said the fans and organization will miss you dearly. Thank you, Hanley Ramirez, and best of luck on your future endeavors and hopefully you get a shot at a world series ring. ( Please don’t sign with New York)
