One of the men who helped save baseball in 1998 with his epic home run duel against St. Louis Cardinals’ Mark McGwire, former Chicago Cubs outfielder Sammy Sosa, looks nothing like he used to.
In a recent appearance on ESPN, Sosa’s shocking transformation was on center stage:
Despite breaking Roger Maris’s single-season record of 61 home runs with 66 of his own compared to McGwire’s 70, Sosa will likely never reach the Hall of Fame due to steroid allegations.
Sosa is a one-time MVP, seven-time All-Star and six-time Silver Slugger. He finished with more than 600 home runs in his 18-year career.
