Yoel Adames of ESPNdeportes.com is reporting that Sammy Sosa will announce his formal retirement from baseball soon. Sosa was still waiting for contract offers as recently as last Christmas. He last played in the Major Leagues in 2007, when he hit .252-.311-.468 in 454 plate appearances for the Texas Rangers. Sosa will retire sixth on the all-time career homerun list with 609.
Will always be my favorite Cub despite how he left. I still don't believe he did steroids. Until I see definitive proof I consider him clean. Hope that time will heal all wounds and he will be forgiven by those who are mad at him and one day he can be welcomed back by the franchise.
