Re: Steve Sailer's Blog: Sammy Sosa Is Michael Jacksonizing His Own Skin
In 2007, the Dominican-born Sammy was their "Immigrant of the Day".
"Sosa had a hard childhood, with his father passing away when he was just seven. His family lived in an abandoned hospital while Sammy sold oranges on the street and shined shoes to make ends meet for his mother and six siblings. He started playing baseball at fourteen, but had to use a branch instead of a bat, an old milk carton for a baseball glove and a sock rolled up as a ball."[Immigrant of the Day: Sammy Sosa (Dominican Republic)]
Then, in a throw away sentence at the blog's end, this:
Sosa, immigrant of the day—cheater and drug abuser.
Brown, who lives in Indiana, writes that he has had a love-hate relationship with the Cubs for more than thirty years.
