Instant history: Dodgers set Manny Ramirez grand slam poster giveaway

July 23, 2009 | 12:15 pm

Ramirez_240 The debate had barely started about where to rank Manny Ramirez's home run on Wednesday night -- a first-pitch, pinch-hit grand slam on his bobblehead doll night -- among the Kirk Gibson, Steve Finley and other memorable home runs in club history when the Dodgers decided to commemorate the event.  

On Aug. 5, the Dodgers will give away a "Mannywood poster which will commemorate last night's game," according to the team blog. The Dodgers play the Milwaukee Brewers that night.
