Boston slugger pulls out of Japan tour with sore hamstring
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

TOKYO (AP) -- World Series MVP Manny Ramirez has pulled out of Major League BaseballÔŅĹs tour of Japan because of a sore left hamstring.

The Boston slugger had been bothered by soreness in his left hamstring since arriving in Japan. He was the designated hitter in the opening game of the series Friday, but sat out Game Two on Saturday and came out midway through Game three yesterday.

Ramirez was examined by doctors traveling with the major league team, and was advised it would be best not to take any chances. He left Japan today on a flight bound for Chicago.

Along with teammate David Ortiz, Ramirez was the biggest draw on the tour.

The series ends November 14th in Tokyo.
