Sosa played with the Chicago Cubs from 1992 until 2004. To quell rumors that his new skin tone was caused by a sickness or steroid use, Sosa addressed the matter during a TV appearance, explaining at the time that his lighter complexion was the result of a skin bleaching cream.
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.
But in a recent interview for ESPN Desportes about the All-Star Home Run Derby, Sosa seems to have taken his lightening to new extremes.
"It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some", said the former slugger during the "Primer Impacto" program at the Univision Spanish network.
Baseball fans once looked at Sammy Sosa and wondered, "Will he break the single-season home-run record?"
And Sosa had no chance to escape unnoticed when he made a public appearance recently with his skin looking as pink as the suit and Fedora he sported. "I don't think I look like Michael Jackson", he added. "I'm not a racist, I live my life happily", said a smiling Sosa during the interview.
But it doesn't take a genius - or a person with a full heart - to understand that whatever is going on with Sosa isn't all that amusing.
Sosa appeared this week on ESPN wearing a bright pink hat, and his skin tone appeared to closely match the hat.
