Born on November 12, 1968, in San Pedro de Marcoris, Dominican Republic, Sammy Sosa was a professional baseball player who spent the peak years of his career with the Chicago Cubs. One of baseball’s strongest hitters, Sosa went to the United States in 1986 to play baseball for a minor league team in Florida. Nearly three years later, he made his major league debut with the Texas Rangers. In only a few weeks, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox. He hit 15 home runs in his first full season with the team. In 1992, Sosa went to play for the Chicago Cubs. He continued to rack up the home runs, but he took his game to a whole new level in 1998. Sosa was caught in a race with Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals to beat Roger Maris’ record of 61 home runs in a single season. The nation watched as the two battled it out, keeping count of each run. McGwire broke the record first and ended the season with 70 runs while Sosa had a total of 66 runs. That same
year Sosa was selected as the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP). Sosa played for the Texas Rangers in 2007, his last professional season.
