CHICAGO, IL – Chicago Cubs fans are concerned with the drastically lightened skin of Sammy Sosa.

The former Cubs slugger has been off the team since 2007, and decided this year to officially retired from Major League Baseball. Sosa was born in the Dominican Republic but played for American teams since 1989.

Picking the right baseball equipment can be a tough task when you factor in availability and pricing.

However, recently he was photographed on the red carpet with his wife at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. His skin appeared to be drastically lighter!


A former Cubs employee, Rebecca Polihronis, has spoken out, explaining that he is undergoing a skin cleansing process. “He has always been concerned with the way he looks,” she said.

“He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin,” Polihronis continued. “Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting.”

Michael Jackson also went through questions of skin bleaching, but Jackson consistently denied such claims, saying he suffered from both vitiligo and lupus.
