Manny Ramirez has still got it—well, at least some of it.

The 12-time MLB All-Star hit his first home run of the year for the Iowa Cubs—the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs—on Monday night. It certainly turned back the clock for those who watched "Man-Ram" mash 555 big-league homers.

Ramirez is with Iowa to serve as a player-coach, helping along some of the organization's most promising hitters.

Sometimes, it's best to lead by example.

Ramirez's home run couldn't have come at a better time, either, as it helped spark a late comeback. The Cubs eventually beat the Omaha Storm Chasers, 7-6, in 10 innings.
