Manny's Porsche goes for $50,100
LOS ANGELES -- A 1994 Porsche belonging to Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez has been auctioned off for $50,100.
The team didn't identify the winner of the online bidding that ended Monday. The red 911 Turbo coupe with gray leather interior has 34,569 miles on it and was appraised at more than $58,000.
Proceeds from the auction will be divided between ThinkCure!, the Dodgers' official charity, and Maryvale, a residential placement home for girls in suburban Rosemead.
The team said Ramirez asked that the proceeds be shared with a center that specifically helps displaced children.
