Manny Ramirez was recently introduced as a member of the Kochi Fighting Dogs in Japan.

The Yakyu Database reports that the former Major League outfielder has some unique perks in his contract with the Independent League club.

  • Use of a Mercedes Benz that will be driven by team staff.
  • A hotel suite priced at about 80,000 yen (about $700) per night.
  • All the sushi he can eat.
  • An English website offering Manny merchandise.
  • Practices are optional.

Ramirez's contract also doesn't prohibit him from signing with a NPB club at some point.
