Manny Ramirez hits 5th HR of winter ball, admires his work before jogging bases

Manny hits HR in Winter League, admires his work

After he spent last season as a player/coach with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs, Manny Ramirez headed down to the Dominican Republic to play some Winter League ball and prove he's still got what it takes to hold his own in MLB.

On Sunday, Manny clobbered his fifth homer in 29 games for Aguilas Cibaenas and took plenty of time to admire his work before his obligatory trot around the bases.

Manny is sporting a .292/.405/.491 line in Winter League play. He's technically an MLB free agent, right now.
