Baseball fans once looked at Sammy Sosa and wondered, “Will he break the single-season home-run record?”
That was so 1998ish. Today, fans are looking at Sosa and asking, “What the heck happened to his face?”
Sosa appeared this week on ESPN wearing a bright pink hat, and his skin tone appeared to closely match the hat.
Many people have gone on social media to try to get the skinny on Sosa’s new look, using the brutal, no-holds-barred approach you’d expect.
