Alex Ramirez Breaks Home Run Record!

Michael BarnettContributor IMay 19, 2008

Congratulations to Alex Ramirez of the Yomiuri Giants. In three major league seasons with the Indians, Ramirez was never able to show his stuff. But in the land of the rising sun, Ramirez has become a hero. After seven seasons with the Yakult Swallows, Ramirez was tabbed to play outfield for the Yomiuri Giants this season.

And on Sunday, in the Tokyo dome, Ramirez hit his 224th career home run. This puts him past Roberto Petagine for the most homers hit by a foreign-born player in Japan's Central League.

But what really seperates the Venezualan slugger from the rest of the league is his home run celebration. Do yourselves a favor and check it out.
