On June 16, 1989, Sammy Sosa made his major league debut for the Texas Rangers. His first-ever career home run was hit off of Roger Clemens, while with the Rangers. On July 29, 1989, Sosa was traded over to the Chicago White Sox.

While with the White Sox, Sammy struck out a lot. In 1990, he struck out 150 times, the most in the league. However, he did make 15 home runs, 70 runs batted in, 10 triples, and 32 stolen bases.

Sammy was traded to the Chicago Cubs in 1992, and stayed with the team for over ten years. He really improved his game while with the Cubs, hitting with power and speed, and improving his batting average to .300 with 25 home runs, 70 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases. Sammy just kept on improving through the years and eventually developed into a major league monster, as he stole 416 total bases in 1998.

The famed baseball player hit so many homeruns that he won the Babe Ruth Home Run Award.

Sosa left the Cubs in 2004, and headed over to the Baltimore Orioles, a year later. In the 2005 season alone, Sosa took home $17,875,000, and the Chicago Cubs paid $7 million of his salary. He eventually ended his career where he began; with the Texas Rangers.

He retired on June 3, 2009. Then two weeks, later a steroid scandal broke out, naming the then-recently retired baseball star as part of a list of players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

In 2017, Sammy Sosa is once again a trending topic, as his new Caucasian appearance has caught the eyes of various internet surfers and media outlets.
