Who: Retired slugger; fertility expert
Manny Ramirez is so weird even the way he left the game was bizarre. After a career in which the Dominican dominated American League pitching - his 555 home runs and .312 career batting average are the residue of 19 big league seasons and 12 All-Star appearances - many look back fondly on Ramirez's quirks, which were as notable as the right-hander's majestic swing. "Manny being Manny," of course, was the popular refrain to excuse behaviour such as hopping through a door in Fenway Park's Green Monster to use the washroom mid-game, though some will suggest the circumstances under which Ramirez retired will taint his legacy. This spring, Ramirez tested positive for human chorionic gonadotropin, a women's fertility drug often used to restart testosterone production following a steroid cycle. Rather than serve a suspension from Major League Baseball, Ramirez chose to hang it up, instead.
