Sammy Sosa Keeps Changing His Look, and It's Pretty Sad

Sammy Sosa Keeps Changing His Look, and It's Pretty Sad

Wearing a pink fedora and outfit that matched the color of his bleached skin, Sosa was ripped on social media not only for his choice of clothing, but for looking more pale than ever before.

The current image of Sammy Sosa going viral is from an interview with ESPNDeportes about the Home Run Derby from earlier this week. In 2009, during an interview on Univision's Primer Impacto program, Sosa admitted to using a "bleaching cream", saying that he'd "apply before going to bed", and that it "whitens my skin some".

Sosa, a native of the Dominican Republic, has been always been suspected of deliberately lightening his skin ever since he was he was run out of baseball.

The photo that has caused such turmoil was taken during the Grammy Latino Awards ceremony held last week at Las Vegas. "I don't think I look like Michael Jackson", Sosa said.

More durable plastic bags will be made available for 15c, and of course, their green hessian bags will also be available. Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci says Woolworths is phasing out single-use bags because "it's the right thing to do".

According to Rebecca Polihronis, who worked with the Cubs while Sosa was on the team, the athlete's hue changed as an unexpected result of a "skin rejuvenation" treatment.

The former right fielder played with the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Socks, and the Baltimore Orioles.

Sosa went from a slender, fleet-footed rookie to a muscly, barrel-chested veteran.

Former Chicago Cubs player Sammy Sosa made an appearance on ESPN's coverage of the Home Run Derby, and let's just say that he's nearly unrecognizable.
