Manny Ramirez’s Failure of a Slide

I don’t even know how to describe what Manny did here. Ramirez is on first base, and the batter hits a grounder to first. The first baseman fields the ball cleanly and sends it to second base. The throw was definitely not one of the best throws, causing the shortstop to come off the base to make the catch. Ramirez does the right thing by sliding to try to maybe break up the double play, but he slides about ten feet away from second base. If he slid closer to the base like every normal baseball player, he would of been safe because of the bad throw. However, his ridiculous slide caused him to be tagged out. I really don’t know what he was thinking. Maybe he thought he was sliding on a slip and slide and thought he could slide long distances. Whatever the case, this is probably one of the worst slides I have ever seen.
