Sammy Sosa: A Story of a Slugger

Sammy Sosa: A Story of a Slugger: Sammy Sosa, a retired professional baseball player, was a baseball right fielder before he retired in 2007. He had debuted in June 16, 1989 when he played with the Texas Rangers for the major league. After that, he had been traded to the Chicago White Sox later in the 1989 season and then to the Chicago Cubs in 1992. Teams Played For: During his career, which started in 1989, he had played with four different teams in the Major League Baseball division. Starting out as a Texas Rangers player, Sosa had been traded less than a year later. While Sammy Sosa was playing with his new team, the Chicago White Sox, he had achieved 15 homeruns, 10 triples, 32 stolen bases and 70 runs batted in. But, he had made a greater feat when he struck 150 times. It was the fourth most strikes in American League. In the 1991 season, he had started out great. Sosa had made 5 runs and 2 homeruns during the season opening. But he had been unlucky in the succeeding games. Thus, before the 1992 season, he was traded by his team to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for George Bell, an outfielder. He had played in the team for 12 years, until he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles in 2004. Year Off and Comeback: By the end of the 2005 season, the Orioles did not offer Sosa arbitration on his contract, which led to Sammy Sosa to be a free agent. He had taken a year off in 2006. But in 2007, Sosa was signed in by his originating team, the Texas Rangers. After a successful season, he was included in the roster of the team and he had made feats that made his career stats and rankings even better. End of Career: After a year playing for the Texas Rangers, Sosa had been a free agent again and had announced that he had plans retiring but he came back in 2008 and announced that he would look for a Major League Baseball team to take him in. But after not being able to get into the Dominican Republic team, he announced that he is retiring and would calmly wait for his Hall of Fame award. Awards: Sammy Sosa had been in the All-Star Games seven times. He had also been awarded with the Silver Slugger award six times. Sosa had also been a National League MVP in 1998 and had been the receiver of the Roberto Clemente and NL Hank Aaron awards. He had also been the winner of the Home Run Derby.
