The Tampa Bay Rays found some Manny Ramirez bobbleheads

Friday February 20th, 2015

Manny Ramirez's tenure with the Tampa Bay Rays was brief, but not entirely unmemorable. He played five games and then retired when he was hit with a 100-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. 

The suspension left the Rays with a whole bunch of useless Manny Ramirez bobblehead dolls, so they just destroyed them all. 

But according to, the Rays found a few boxes that escaped the incinerator and will be selling the surviving dolls this weekend to raise money for charity. 

Nationals players are excited about 'Star Wars Day'

If you want to commemorate Ramirez's 17 plate appearances with the Rays, the dolls cost $20.
