Yahoo / What Happened To ‘Cowboy’ Sammy Sosa? Lighter Skin Freaks Twitter Users Out (Again) More On Sunday, baseball legend Sammy Sosa set Twitter abuzz when new pictures of him surfaced. The former athlete has sported a lighter skin tone for years, but his most recent picture further confused netizens: Not only was Sosa’s skin lighter, he was wearing a red cowboy hat and a country Western shirt.
Barstool Sports podcast host Dan Katz was a fan of “cowboy Sammy.”
“The craziest part about the Cowboy Sammy picture is that I just assumed it was an old picture because the ‘weird Sammy Sosa picture’ catalogue has gotten so big nothing new shocks me,” he tweeted.

– Desmond James (@james_desmond) February 11, 2018 So why is Sosa in a cowboy getup? On Saturday, he went to a Western-themed party for wife Sonia’s birthday. The Instagram account for the Univision show El Gordo y la Flaca showed more than a dozen pictures and videos of Sosa enjoying the party with his wife.
Born in the Dominican Republic, Sosa had darker skin when he first garnered fame in the MLB, hitting 609 homeruns in his career.
In 2009, Sosa addressed his complexion, saying he used skin bleaching cream.
