The Dodgers sold $25 wigs, about 1,800 of them this year, that imitate Manny Ramirez dreadlocks. At Dodger Stadium this year, they have sold 850 of his jerseys and 5,000 Ramirez T-shirts, the team said.
Four days into Manny Ramirez’s 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy, Dodgers owner Frank McCourt broke his silence.
McCourt acknowledged during the Dodgers’ 7-5, 13-inning loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday that he spoke to Ramirez on the phone the previous day, and also met with the troubled All-Star outfielder. McCourt wouldn’t disclose the location of their meeting, but a source familiar with the situation said that it took place at Ramirez’s Pasadena apartment. –NY POST
