Here is the true story of Sammy Sosa, the baseball player whose extraordinary talent has made him the sport's greatest international ambassador with millions of fans worldwide.

Growing up in the poverty-stricken town of San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, Sammy Sosa shined shoes and washed cars to help buy food for his family. For fun, he learned how to play baseball with an empty milk carton as his glove and a wooden stick as his bat. By the time he was 16, he was scouted and signed by the Texas Rangers. And in 1998, Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs joined Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals in breaking the legendary Roger Maris' 37-year-old record of 61 home runs in a single season, changing the history of baseball. Sammy Sosa's amazing story is an inspiring tale of phenomenal talent, the likes of which haven't been seen since baseball greats Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Joe DiMaggio.-- Baseball has seen a resurgence in popularity as millions of fans watched Sammy Sosa make sports history and become a beloved household name everywhere. In 1998 he hit 66 home runs and then hit another 63 in 1999. Sosa was named the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1998.-- Over the past two years, Sosa has become a daily fixture on the nightly sports highlight reels and has made appearances on late-night talk shows.

About The Author

Sammy Sosa is a Dominican-American former professional baseball right fielder. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for 19 seasons, primarily with the Chicago Cubs. After playing for the Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox, Sosa joined the Cubs in 1992 and became regarded as one of the game's best hitters. Sosa hit his 400th home run in his 1,354th game and his 5,273rd at-bat, reaching this milestone quicker than any player in National League history. He is one of nine players in MLB history to hit 600 career home runs.

In 1998, Sosa and Mark McGwire achieved national fame for their home run-hitting prowess in pursuit of Roger Maris' home run record. With the Cubs, Sosa became a 7-time All-Star while holding numerous team records. He finished his career with stints with the Baltimore Orioles and the Rangers for a second time. With the Rangers, Sosa hit his 600th career home run to become the fifth player in MLB history to reach the milestone.

Sosa is second all-time in home runs among foreign-born MLB players and is one of only three National League players since 1900 to reach 160 RBIs in one season (2001). He is also the only player to have hit 60 or more home runs in a single season three times, which he accomplished in 1998, 1999, and 2001. He did not lead the league in home runs in any of those seasons, although he did lead the league in 2000 with 50 home runs, and in 2002 with 49.
